Adult Education

Adult Education

Growing in faith involves ongoing education. A committed Christian must always be seeking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Christian tradition and the scriptures. Adult education opportunities are regularly offered at Ascension.

Cohen.

The Pilgrim Course


Using a new curriculum from The Church of England, Pilgrim explores scripture and issues of faith through small group reflection and discussion. The Pilgrim Course meets regularly on Thursdays at 6pm in the Rector’s office.
