Welcome to the website for Stirchley's local Church of England parish church!
We want to be 'good news' in our local neighbourhood and to reflect the faithfulness, generosity and openness of the God in whom we believe and encounter in Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to all who are seeking meaning, community and belonging.
The Church of the Ascension building is open for Sunday worship every week at 10.15am.
Our worship service is always a eucharist (holy communion) but the style varies.
The monthly Family Service - Pineapple Church @12 - a short informal gathering for all ages, is at 12noon on the last Sunday of each month. A shared Community Lunch follows at 12.30pm.
We share the common cup, alongside sharing bread at the eucharist. We recognise that not everyone will be comfortable to share the common cup, and there is absolutely no pressure on anyone to do so.
The weekly 'notice sheet' is usually 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, which we do using Zoom during the week.
You are very welcome.
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."
