Life Ascending is a Catholic movement for men and women in their middle to later years. Life Ascending has three aims: Spirituality Friendship and Mission
Life Ascending welcomes all Christians and their friends of other faiths, who have that extra time to reflect, hope, to grow in faith and smile
Christ’s message in the Gospels is at the heart of the meeting and reveals new insights into all that Christ is saying to us at this stage of our lives. Sharing the Good News and our joys, concerns, experiences and activities can bring great happiness and peace of heart.
Here, within the parish group, friendships develop as members pray and share various concerns and resolve them, like untying a knot and then letting things go. The time spent together is valuable and bears fruit as we find ways to help others, in the family, the Church and our local community. Laughter and fun is key when we meet. It prevents the Life Ascend in meeting becoming too, too serious and lifts the spirit.
Ascent Group meetings generally take place on Mondays will take place in St Swithun’s Church Hall. ALL ARE WELCOME
Location: Church Hall St Swithun’s Church
