Volunteer with the Children and Youth Ministry

The Children and Youth Ministry at Ascension is currently looking for volunteers in the following ministries:

Messy Church Volunteers Wanted


Church of the Ascension and Trinity Anglican Church are partnering again this year to host Messy Church, an interactive worship followed by a communal meal, for families with children ages 0-12 years. This program is offered four times throughout the school year. We are looking for 2-3 volunteers from Ascension to help facilitate our activity stations, in the month of October and February. This is a great opportunity for those interested in exploring the biblical narratives with children, through discussions questions and active play (i.e., crafts, arts, and games). High school students are welcome! If you are interested in volunteering, please email Ashley (ashley.g.russell@gmail.com).
