Welcome to our website. Our mission statement declares that the Parish of Bitterne Park believes in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and is a community dedicated to sharing the love of Jesus by radical inclusive hospitality, healing, reconciliation and wholeness.
We have two church buildings in the Parish; the Ascension Centre, Thorold Road, and All Hallows Church, Witts Hill.
Every Sunday you are invited to refreshments after the 9.30 am. service or before the 11.00 am. service.
The Ascension Centre has a café and a range of rooms available for hire. It also has some stunning stained glass windows and some fine bells. We're currently looking for more cafe volunteers. conact Jenny on firstname.lastname@example.org.
A March letter from our Reader, Jenny Hewett
Once again Lent is approaching fast. This year we have the opportunity to take part in a Lent Course, “Living the Mission of Jesus”, written by the Diocese. This will be the theme for the children’s activities, sermons and our study groups.
We will be considering how..
- we grow authentic disciples
- we re-imagine the church
- we are agents of social transformation
- we belong together in Christ, practising sacrificial living and good stewardship of all that God has entrusted to us.
Bishop Tim writes, “Lent is a time of reflection and anticipation. It’s a time to scrutinise ourselves and to ask what Jesus us saying to his church today: to ask what needs to die with Christ so that something new might also rise with him to new life.”
A Prayer for Lent:
Lord be with me at every moment and in every place. Give me the strength and the courage to live this season faithfully . so that , when Easter comes I will be able to taste with joy the new life which you have prepared for me.
May each one of us take time this Lent to walk with our Lord
Love and prayers
