The Church of the Ascension

Westminster, MD   


Welcome to the Church of the Ascension! We warmly welcome seekers and believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. In all aspects of our life together we strive to be a Christ-centered, spirit-filled, mission-minded family of faith, so reflecting the life of Christ that we draw all people to him.
As Episcopalians, we are part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which traces its origins to the beginnings of Christianity. At Ascension, we worship with both contemporary and conventional styles, but are always anchored in the Anglican tradition. We are a family-oriented church, yet we strive to serve all of God’s people, regardless of age or situation.
We extend a hand to all looking for a church home. Attend a worship service or join us at an event, ask questions, and let us show you our church and get to know you. Come and explore and grow with us!
