On Ascension Day, Thursday 30 May, we will festively proclaim that Jesus Christ is our Lord and we will confess that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead. We will affirm that Christ is alive forever, and ascended into heaven, where he sits at the right hand of the Father as the Son of God, on the eternal throne, and has all authority in heaven and on earth.
 
On the day Jesus ascended to heaven, he commissioned us to build his Church and proclaim his eternal Kingdom.
Therefore, we must go and make disciples of all nations
and always serve him as Head of the Church - with love, obedience and reverence, till our lives’ end
 
Ascension Day will once again proclaim Christ’s glorious triumph and his complete coming dominion over all.
Ascension Day insists that we live as people who follow the Son of God, the eternal Messiah, and serve him only, in everything we do.
 
 

 

Let us therefore come together on Thursday and sing a new song unto the ascended King to learn to honour, obey, worship, praise and hail our eternal King of glory.
 
 

 

An Ascension Day Hymn - (Music of Ode to Joy)
 
Jesus Christ, o Lord, almighty,
David’s son, yet holy, free!
We will always praise, adore Thee,
God for all eternity.
Praise our Lord, He is our bounty,
our inheritance is He.
Sing hosanna, bring Him glory,
laud his gracious majesty!
 
Jesus Christ, o Lord, almighty,
reigns with God eternally.
At the right hand of the Father,
saves His Church so graciously.
Sing hosanna, bring Him glory,
merciful and great is He!
He who leads His chosen people -
worship Him, praise ceaselessly!
 
 
All Hail ascended King!
