Get To Know Us
Ascension is a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community of people who gather to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, to give praise and thanks to God through the beauty of worship, and to love and serve God and our neighbors.
Regular Worship Schedule
Starting April 28, "socially distanced" Eucharist services will be held on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Due to limited seating and contact tracing requirements, pews must be reserved in advance. For now, most other public services and programs of the Church of the Ascension are taking place online until further notice. Contact the parish office to learn how to attend our online services via Zoom.
We'd like to hear from you!
This podcast episode features the hymns and anthem recorded by Dr. Dennis Keene and the Ascension Choir, featuring the Manton Memorial Organ, for the Church of the Ascension’s worship service on the Second Sunday of Easter, April 11, 2021, which took place online via Zoom.
- O Sons and Daughters, Let Us Sing (O filii et filiae)
- But Thanks Be to God (from Messiah) – George Frideric Handel
- We Walk by Faith, and Not by Sight (St. Botolph)
As we cautiously take steps toward reopening the church during this time of pandemic, we are resuming Wednesday in-person Eucharist starting April 28 at 6:00 p.m. To reserve a seat, visit ascensionnyc.org/reservations. And the church continues to be open for private prayer and meditation on Tuesdays and Fridays from noon to 3.
Please join us for worship online or by phone this Second Sunday of Eastertide. Preludial music — three pieces by baroque composer François Couperin this week — begins at 10:45 a.m., followed by a service of scripture, hymns, an anthem from Handel’s Messiah, and a sermon to be preached by our seminarian, Linda Brandt.

O God, who wonderfully created, and yet more wonderfully restored, the dignity of human nature: Grant that we may share the divine life of him who humbled himself to share our humanity, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Almighty God, we pray you graciously to behold this your family, for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed, and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross; who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
