Welcome to the Church of the Ascension

The Church of the Ascension is a wonderful community oasis that has been serving the people Greenpoint and Williamsburg communities since 1846.

Whether you are rich, poor, a city slicker, country bumpkin, a new arrival to the area or life long brooklynite; liberal or conservative, straight, gay or somewhere in between, filled with doubts or certain in your faith; whether arriving alone or with a boatload of kids there is a place for for your unique being at Ascension. Please join us as we try to love God through loving our neighbor as ourselves.


Each year we have a Thanksgiving meal for people in the community. The meal runs from 11.30 to 3.30 pm Thanksgiving Day and volunteer slots for the meal are from 9am to 4.30pm. We hope that you will be able to fill at least a 2 hour slot.

The sign up form is this link….please click here in order to sign up

Please do not call the church office to volunteer. Thank you in advance for your efforts!

Sunday Services are 11am and 5pm

Coming to a new church or back to church can be daunting as we often have  expectations, hopes and various kinds of “baggage”. If you have recently come back or are thinking about it feel free to contact the clergy Rev. John Merz for a casual conversation about things at ascensionbrooklyn@gmail.com
