Our 2016 Prayer for Church Growth

Please use this prayer in your daily devotions to help us pray for the increase of God's Kingdom here in our Parish.

Dear Heavenly Father,

please grow Your kingdom here in our parish. Fill our worship with Your living presence and help us to experience You touching and transforming our lives. Help us to know You better and give us the confidence to trust You more. Help us to work with You in drawing people into this church, and to welcome them when they come. Especially we pray that new families and children may find the love of Jesus here, and the joy of knowing Him as their Saviour and Lord.

Temporary Closure of Church of the Ascension, Telham

Due to the re-plastering and redecoration works, the Church is temporarily closed. The work is taking a little longer than anticipated and therefore the original re-opening date of 23rd October has now been postponed. Please watch this space for further news.

Love in a Box – Christmas shoebox collection

Leaflets are available at the back of church explaining how to put together a shoebox of small gifts for a child, with suggestions of suitable items for children of different ages. Filled shoeboxes should be brought to the church for collection by Mustard Seed Relief Mission, no later than Sunday 20th November please. (Please supply your own empty shoebox. The local shoe shops are usually very cooperative and will let you have one if you ask them.)




We are a group of Christians who love meeting visitors to the historic town of Battle in East Sussex.

We always enjoy seeing new friends who wish to worship the Lord Jesus with us and if you come along to one of our services you can be sure of a very warm and friendly welcome. 

We hope our website will give you an idea of what goes on at St Mary's and the Church of the Ascension, Telham from week to week. There are many different activities that you can be involved in. Please browse the pages to find out more or ask a member of the Welcome Team at one of the Sunday services.
