Ascent with Holy Communion @ Holy Rood Church
Oct 22 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Ascent with Holy Communion @ Holy Rood Church | United Kingdom

‘Ascent’ is the name for the 6.30pm Sunday service at Holy Rood Church. ‘Ascent’ uses the picture of ‘going up the mountain of the Lord’ to encourage us in prayer, worship and seeking God’s presence.

In both Old and New Testaments, mountains were places of meeting God. ‘Ascent’ reflects the desire to mark out a space within the life of the parish for extended worship, prayer, ministry and the work of the Holy Spirit. It takes time to make that journey, to draw near to God, and at ‘Ascent’ we want to make that time and space.

At this service we share communion together to remember, with thanksgiving, how Jesus gave His life for us.

We do hope you’re excited about the ‘Ascent’. Let’s make the journey together.

Refreshments are available at the back of the church before the service.
