‘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.

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.

This service is particularly suitable for families, but all are welcome.  During the service the children will be given a Christingle.  The different parts of the Christingle each remind us of God’s work in the world.  The orange represents the world. The dried fruits and sweets are symbols of God’s creations. For many people, they also represent the four seasons. The red ribbon round the middle of the orange indicates the love and blood of Christ.  While the lit candle symbolises Jesus, the light of the world, who brings hope to people living in darkness.
