Mission Statement

The mission of The Church of the Ascension is to build up the body of Christ and to spread His good news, by word and deed, throughout the South Florida community and the world.

A Welcome Message

It’s with a deep sense of gratitude that I welcome you to our website. We pray that some aspect of what you see will stimulate your interest. We are an Episcopal/ Anglican church and, as such, are a part of the worldwide Anglican community.

The site was designed to reflect our values and ideology, which are based on WORSHIP. The bible tells us to worship God in Spirit and in truth. LOVE: Jesus said “Love each other as I have loved you”. MINISTRY: We are told to labor and not to count the cost.

We welcome all and exclude none. We welcome singles, couples (with or without young children), teenagers, and elderly folks. Prayerfully, after a few visits, you will find us to be a good fit. Our bible-based Sunday school, Parish Life and Affirmative Aging ministries are tailored toward you gaining a deeper knowledge and love of Christ.

If you need more information, or wish to speak with a priest, of our senior warden, please call the office at 305-238-5151, visit us at 11201 SW 160th Street, Miami, Fl. 33157. The opening hours are: Tues. - Fri. 8:30am - 2:00pm. Once again, welcome! May the Lord bless and keep you and be gracious unto you.

The Ascension of Christ

He presented himself alive [to the apostles] after his suffering by many proofs appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God

...And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up and a cloud took him out of their sight. (Actions 1: 1-11)
