New to Ascension?
The Episcopal Church of the Ascension is a progressive, multicultural Christian community in metropolitan D.C. with a passion for service, diverse worship, and life long spiritual formation.
We believe that God continues to be revealed in all cultures in every era. We treasure the opportunities for mutual evangelism we encounter in our church and in our world.
Our worship is a celebration of Godâ€™s abiding love. We are a community of unconditional welcome, inviting anyone to our worship community. We endeavor to speak newcomersâ€™ languages and meet them in the cultures of their homes.
Christianity means action. We see a fundamental connection between the freely given life of Christ and the giving of our lives in the service of others.
The Christian journey is a lifelong pursuit. We have a tradition of living a life in Christ by enriching our understanding through study, and converting our hearts through shared spiritual practice. â€“ Seamus Welsh
