Whatever your background, you have a place with us. We are a congregation drawn from many ethnic, theological, economic, and political backgrounds. We are young and old, single and coupled, poor and rich, conservative and liberal, catholic and protestant, native born and immigrant, white and people of color, gay and heterosexual. We truly are a house of prayer for all people!

The Church of the Ascension is blessed with an historic church building and an active congregation that emphasizes ministry to young people. Our warm and vibrant worship blends the Episcopal tradition with contemporary spirituality. We are active in the broader life of our community and support numerous outreach projects.

Please join us as we worship on Sundays at 10:00 a.m.

Our order of worship is drawn from the Book of Common Prayer of the Episcopal Church in the United States. The Book of Common Prayer is made up entirely of direct quotes and paraphrases of Holy Scripture. Our music is drawn from a variety of traditional and contemporary praise sources. Our hymns and songs are our prayers set to music. During worship, everyone present is encouraged to share Christ’s peace and to receive the bread and wine of communion. We believe these actions of community inclusion are fundamental to Christian worship. At 10:00 a.m., we join hands with those around us for the Our Father, another act of community inclusion. Also at 10:00 a.m., children of all ages are encouraged to participate as fully as possible in our worship and are typically invited to join the presiding priest at the altar for the prayer of consecration, which is the focal point of our Sunday worship. The laying on of hands and annointing for healing is available at all of our worship services.

We also worship on Sundays at 8:00 a.m.

Our 8:00 a.m. service is a forty-five minute spoken service.

We hope that you will worship with us but please know that we are one of four Episcopal Churches in the Brandywine Hundred, each of which has its own unique and vibrant witness. If you can not worship with us then please remember our sister congregations: Grace, Calvary, and St. David's.
