Ascension Day Service – Thursday 21 May

Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on the 40th day of Easter, and commemorates Christ’s ascension into heaven.

We will celebrate the occasion with a service on Thursday that will be led by Rachel (with the help of Sid), the talk will be given by Revd Fred Connell and the intercessions will be led by Revd Clare Connell.

This will provide us all with an opportunity to pause and reflect on God’s word and our response to it.

We hope that as many as possible will watch this video at

7:00 pm on Thursday 21 May

so that we can share the experience of corporate prayer and worship whilst maintaining social distancing.

You might find it helpful to display a copy of the Weekly Notices side-by-side with the video or have a printed copy handy.

The video will remain on the website afterwards, so that you can watch it again later (or for the first time, if you missed it before!)

Click on the image below to watch the video. It will ‘go live’ 30 minutes before the scheduled start time.

Ascending bubbles

We will continue the celebration after the service with on online Zoom meeting at 7.45 pm, where we encourage you to raise a glass of ‘ascending bubbles’ to symbolise the ascension of Christ into Heaven. To join the meeting, click here at 7.45 pm.

We would love to know how many are joining us in these services and what you think of them. We can tell how many 'views' we get through YouTube but we have no idea how many are watching each screen or what you thought!

We very much value your feedback and would be most grateful if you could spare a few seconds to answer the questions below. All responses are anonymous (unless you choose to give us your name) and no comments will be published unless you give us your consent.

Yours in Christ,

Reverend Rachel Mitchell
