We are pleased to offer school visits to our church to study the building, to learn more about special services and to celebrate special occasions during the school year such as Harvest, Christmas, Easter and end of school year services. Special visits can also be arranged for groups looking at Christian baptism and marriage. The church has had several dressing up costumes made and relevant craft making and celebratory activities are available to facilitate an interactive educational visit for around 30 pupils aged up to 10 years. For more information please contact the office on 01244 383518.
We go into the schools within the Parish to do assemblies and facilitate faith discussions within the classroom, please contact the office on 01244 383518 for more information.

Holy Ascension Church has good links with our uniformed organisations and currently holds three Church Parade Services a year as advertised in the notice sheet, Parish magazine and Facebook. One of our parades in the summer months takes the form of a "Messy Church" style. Our autumn service is always held on Remembrance Sunday when the whole community gathers together to remember those who have given their lives in the service of others.
All sections of our uniformed groups are in great demand. Please register your child's name for a place at the earliest opportunity.
All the groups urgently need volunteers to support them with their invaluable activities. Please do contact them as soon as you can if you are able and willing to help.
