Church of the Ascension has a long history of strong biblical preaching. While we sometimes have sermon series, for the most part, the scriptures we hear each Sunday (Old Testament, Psalm, Epistle, and Gospel) follow those set out in the Lectionary produced by the Anglican Church in North America.
We have several priests who preach regularly at Ascension. Our main preacher is our Rector, Jonathan Millard. A former English barrister, Jonathan learned public speaking through addressing judges and juries. He is now very happy to preach to the congregation at Ascension! Other regular preachers include our Associate Rector, Jonathan Warren and our Writer-in-Residence, Tish Warren. The Warrens joined Ascension staff in January 2017 and might win the “Most Well-Read Couple Award”! They bring with them a depth of scriptural and cultural insight as well as hearts that desire to serve the church. Periodically we invite guest preachers including our Bishop as well as our Liturgical Assistants (volunteer priests who have other employment outside the church).
If you want to listen to a sermon, you can also do so directly from this page (below on SoundCloud) or you can access sermons on iTunes available here. If you have questions about a particular audio file, please contact Chris Massa.
