By your Gift, the Holy Ghost, we are set aflame and borne aloft,
and the fire within us carries us upward.
'Our hearts are set on an upward journey,' as we sing the 'song of ascents'.
It is your fire, your good fire, that sets us aflame and carries us upward.
For our journey leads us upward to the peace of the heavenly Jerusalem;
it was a 'welcome sound when I heard them saying,
We will go into the house of the Lord.'

 

St Augustine, Confessions, Bk XIII, para 9

 

"The Ascension of Christ proclaims and celebrates our spiritual destiny
as sons and daughters of God by adoption and grace...
“Our conversation is in heaven,” [Php 3:20]
and in the Church’s liturgy,
we find ourselves engaged in precisely that conversation,
“with angels and archangels and all the company of heaven”. 
Here, in liturgy, all the arts conspire to solicit mind and heart,
to wean the soul from worldliness. 
A door is opened into heaven."

 

Robert Crouse, A Sermon for Ascension

thy kingdom come...

In the Autumn of 2022 AD, a new Anglican Church (Diocese in Europe, Church of England) opened
in the region of Het Gooi in the Netherlands with services in English.
We are a daughter church of All Saints Anglican Church in Amersfoort, though independent in our vision and ongoing ministry.

Our worship services are in the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Hilversum (Boomberglaan 6, Hilversum).
