Church of England Diocese of Birmingham The Ascension Stirchley

Ascension Stirchley

Welcome to the website for the Church of the 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. 

Sadly we cannot offer the church building as a place of prayer present. We do however continue to be the church at prayer together, though physically distanced.

On Sundays we will seek to stream an act of worship in which people can join at home at 10.15am, which will be available through the 'Video - Worship and Prayer' tab.

The weekly 'notice sheet' will continue to be 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.

Safeguarding Information:

The parish of 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."
