Church of The Ascension

WELCOME to the parish church of Stirchley, Birmingham


Worship at the Ascension is Anglican, in the modern catholic tradition, and liberal in its theology. The priest wears vestments  and we use bells and incense at our main sung service.  

     Our main Sunday services are:-     

      8.45am Said Morning Prayer

      9.00am Said Holy Communion
(quieter service in the Chapel of Our Lady and St Hugh)    

     10.15am Sung Mass 
(Children are most welcome. There are toys and books for young children in the children's corner in church and also in the Lady Chapel.)

On the last Sunday of each month, there is a Family Service at 11.45 am - this is usually just 25 minutes, easy-going and child-friendly. You will be very welcome, whether or not you are familiar with church. NOTE: you do not have to have children to come!  

The midweek services are :-  

    10.00am on Thursday - said Morning Prayer

    10.15am on Thursday - said Mass

During Holy Week there are services each evening, and special evening masses are celebrated on major feast days. Please see the Notices and Events page for details of forthcoming feasts.     

Baptisms (Christenings) are often held at the 10.15 am service. Please contact the parish priest if you want to explore the possibility of baptism for you or your child.

Weddings: Please contact the parish priest if you are interested in getting married at the Church of the Ascension and she will be delighted to talk to you about what is involved.
