Ascension Church.



Welcome to Ascension Church, Peacehaven and Telscombe Cliffs.

The growing church family is of all ages and backgrounds. Folks who join us often comment on the welcome, love, prayer, coffee and cake! All are important. A variety of music sources are used in the services.

Every year the church is involved in providing Christmas Lunch for people who would otherwise spend it alone. We do this in partnership with some of the other churches and it has proved very popular. During the last year we have tithed monies given to the church, and as a result have been able to support eight charities financially.

Charities We support:

House Project

Memory Cafe


Bible Society

UCB (Word for today)


Every single week members bring food for the local food bank. Harvest Sunday alone over 300 items were donated.
