On 13th May we celebrate Christ's Ascension

28 Apr 2021, midnight

One of several high points in this part of the church's calendar, Ascension Day marks the last time Jesus' disciples saw him, when he took his leave of them and was symbolically received up to heaven.  Only ten days later at Pentecost his disciples would suddenly find themselves empowered to speak boldly in all sorts of languages to the visitors who came from all around the Roman world at this particular festival - and the Christian church was in business!

Because of COVID our service this year will lack some of the music and drama the occasion deserves, but we hope you will join us in St Mary's at 7:00pm on Thursday 13th May
