The Ascension Church, Haywards Heath

Freely you have received, freely give

A very warm festive welcome to the Ascension.  

Although our church and buildings have been around for a while, the parish of the Ascension was formed only at the beginning of 2008.  We are seeking our way forward in being faithful to God and in our engagement with the community around us.  Through prayer, God has given us the command, 'Freely you have received, freely give' and we are taking this seriously.  We have determined, therefore, to be 'Christ centred and mission focussed' and this is at the heart of all we are about.  It means that we are not entirely traditional; we try things out as we seek to reach people who increasingly know little of the things of faith.  The challenge before us in this  is great but our God is greater!

We hope you enjoy this website and can find what you are looking for.  We look forward to welcoming you to our church this festive season and if you have any questions or comments,  please feel free to contact us.
