I'm sending this update a little earlier in the week because tomorrow is the day the Church marks Jesus' ascension, 40 days after his resurrection. We know from the writings of Augustine that this annual celebration had begun in the very early days of the Church, perhaps even as far back as the apostles themselves! So tomorrow (Thursday) at 10am there will be an Ascension Service focused on Jesus' return to Heaven, and I'll include the communion prayer in case you would like to pray along. I would encourage you to also join in with Christians around the world in praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' between then and the day we mark Pentecost, on Sunday 31st May. (Please see the links further down for more information).

This Ascension service (Thursday 10am and available afterwards) will be available in the same way as our 9.30am Sunday and 7.30pm Prayer Services on Mondays and Fridays:
