Our neighbors at First Presbyterian Church are celebrating their 300th anniversary the weekend of January 23-24. On Sunday, January 24 at 4 pm, they are hosting a lecture entitled “God in Gotham: Three Hundred Years of Changes to City and Church”, given by Dr. Kenneth T. Jackson, professor of History and Social Sciences at Columbia University. All are invited, and no doubt some of First Presbyterian’s history overlaps significantly with ours at the Church of the Ascension!
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!
