Welcome to the CHURCH of the ASCENSION!
As a member of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe,
we are an Anglican Church offering worship in English, and serving greater Munich and Bavaria.
We welcome everyone, wherever they are on their spiritual journey, to join our community and
together try to move towards a deeper knowledge of God as revealed in Jesus Christ.
Our main worship service is on Sundays at 12 o'clock
at the Emmauskirche, Seybothstr. 4, Munich-Harlaching.
Youth Group & Confirmation
Youth Group – Most members of last year’s youth group graduated from school in summer
and are now at university or have moved away.
If you are between 10 & 18 and are interested in forming a continuing youth group, please contact Rev. Steve.
We will happily form a youth group if there is interest!
Confirmation for Youth – We will offer a confirmation class for teenagers from 13 to 18, beginning in October.
Confirmation will take place in spring 2017 when our Bishop makes his annual visitation.
If you or your teen is interested in confirmation, please contact Rev. Steve
Confirmation for Adults - There will also be a confirmation class for adults
who are interested in being confirmed into the Anglican tradition of the Christian church.
The class is also open to those who have been confirmed in another Christian tradition
but wish to be received into the Anglican tradition.
