We are a community that expresses its love for our Lord Jesus Christ in ancient worship forms.
We are a community that seeks to understand what it prays. We are a community that asks the Holy Spirit to teach us to love one another and the world beyond our church walls.
By God’s grace, we are growing. We would love for you to join us!
In 1953 The Episcopal Church of the Ascension was chartered as a “Self-Organized” Mission Station, meeting in the Vestavia Hills Town Hall, in homes, and in kindergarten and school buildings, under the guidance of Bishops Carpenter and Murray; The Reverends John Turn, Marshall Seifert, Benjamin Smith; our first Vicars, The Reverends David Cady Wright, and Lee Graham; and Lay Reader, Judge Eugene Hawkins.
