Church of England Diocese of Liverpool Birchwood and Woolston

The Church of the Ascension


The Church of the Ascension has been at the heart of Woolston for 50 years.  We are a church community in East Warrington, and part of the Church of England. We are made up of people of all ages and backgrounds. Everyone is welcome at The Ascension, whether you are new to the area, would like to find out more about the Christian faith, are looking for some hope, or have been coming here for years!

The parish of Birchwood and Woolston is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Liverpool’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

Sunday Worship on Facebook Live

Every Sunday at 11 a.m. for 30m

Warren Lane

Due to coronavirus we are unable to hold services in our church building at this time. Therefore, on Sunday mornings at 11am we stream a service on Facebook Live. The service includes a few hymns, some prayers and readings, and a thought or reflection on the Bible reading. It usually lasts for 30-40 minutes.

You don't need to have a Facebook account to watch the service. Simply search '@AscensionWoolston' in Google, or another search engine, and it should take you to our page where you will be able to see the service.

After the service we have a time of chat and fellowship on Zoom - a bit like the time we would spend together enjoying coffee after the service. The meeting ID and instructions to take part are publicised during the Facebook Live service.
