Welcome to the Website for the Parish Church of Ascension with All Saints (AwAS), Chelmsford.   Although we are Church of England we are a ‘Modern Catholic’ Church. That means that, although we value traditional aspects of worship such as wearing vestments and using incense, we are of a more liberal and inclusive mind when it comes to thinking about God.   Anyone is welcome to our services, we are affiliated to ‘Inclusive Church’.   We are happy to help with any questions you may have about the Christian Faith and, of course, if you would like to arrange a Wedding or Baptism. We are quite flexible and are happy to help you make your service something that truly reflects who you are.   If you would like to know more please do not hesitate to contact any of the staff, details are in the Ministers/Contacts section of the site.
