Visitor Information

Children

Children are welcome at The Ascension. There is a designated children’s area with toys, books and activities. This is an unsupervised area at the back of the church. A baby-change station is located in the disabled toilet at the back of the church.

Whilst children are most welcome at all services, our monthly Family Mass (held on the first Sunday of every month) provides a less formal style of worship and encourages children to actively participate in the liturgy.

Accessibility

Worshippers and visitors with disabilities are welcome at The Ascension. Both entrances to the church are wheelchair / mobility scooter friendly, however, if you require further assistance, please speak to our Sidespeople on arrival. There is an accessible toilet onsite at the back of the church and wheelchair ramps are available for access into the garden.

If you are unable to make it to the chancel steps to receive the Sacrament, please let one of our Sidespeople know and they will ensure that the Sacrament is brought to you in your seat during Communion.

Facilities

Two unisex toilets, and one accessible toilet, are located at the back of the church. A baby-change station can be found in the accessible toilet.


Tea and coffee is served after the 11:00 Mass each Sunday. Sherry is served after Evensong and Benediction (last Sunday of each month at 18:00)
