Welcome to the website for Ascension Stirchley's local Church of England church!
We want to be 'good news' in our local neighbourhood and to offer openness and welcome place to all who are seeking quiet, beauty and community.
We have taken the important but difficult decision to close The Church of the Ascension on Pineapple Grove during the coming weeks. The Church building will be open for public worship each Sunday at 10.15am again in due course.
Although we had begun to worship together again in the church building we have also continued to be the church at prayer together in our own homes. All are welcome to join in worship in the Church building (when it is open) or on-line.
Please be aware that the wearing of masks is mandatory in the Church building, unless you are medically exempt, and congregational singing is not currently permitted.
On Sundays we will live-stream at 10.15am, so people can join at home. This is available through the 'On-line Worship and Prayer' tab.
There is an opportunity to join in worship using 'Zoom' each Sunday. Please see details through the 'On-line Worship and Prayer' tab.
The weekly 'notice sheet' is available to download on the 'News and notices' tab.
Please use the 'Contact Us' tab to send requests for prayer, or to be included in our praying together, although physically distanced.
Ascension Stirchley 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 Birmingham’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."
