Ascension Trust is a Christian inter-denominational organisation with a passion to empower individuals to work together within their local community and nation, to contribute positively to society, and to improve the quality of life of the disadvantaged and vulnerable.
Ascension Trust initiatives include Street Pastors, pioneered in London in 2003 by Rev Les Isaac OBE, which now has over 12,000 trained volunteers, and the 60/40 project – a joint initiative of Ascension Trust, the Methodist Church and London City Mission that exists to care for, equip and empower teenagers in Lambeth, to name but a few.
Ascension Trust will be holding its Grand Evening Celebration and its special 25 Years Thanksgiving Service & Graduation Ceremony – both to be held at the prestigious Emmanuel Centre, Marsham Street, London SW1 3DW.
On Friday 9th November, 18:30 to 20:30, Ascension Trust Evening Celebration will be a gathering together for worship and celebration, with artists Graham Kendrick and band; Lou Fellingham is confirmed, as well as IEC Band. There will also be performances by The Darvell Community Singers.
On Saturday 10th November, 14.00 to 17.00, there will be a special 25 Years Thanksgiving Service and Street Pastor Graduation Ceremony. The event includes worship from worship leader Jake Isaac; a performance by the Metropolitan Police Choir, and an address by Mr Ram Gidoomal CBE – Patron of Ascension Trust.
Attendance at both events is free of charge, but places must be booked in advance. There will be an opportunity for donations. For more information, visit: www.ascensiontrust.org.uk.
