The Ascent.... is an invitation to
climb. It’s an invitation to proximity. It’s an invitation to intimacy. In the
Old Testament there are 15 psalms of ascent. Songs that Israel sang on their
way to celebrate God at festivals. They express amazing grace and they quiet
anxious fears. They are songs that provide courage and support as we travel the
roads of faith and discover who we are and what God’s called us to. Eugene
Peterson says the psalms of ascent are like placing your feet in the footprints
of others and reminding ourselves to be moved again, to keep walking forward in
the direction of God. In 2018, we are committed to pursuit, to passion and to
We are committed to lifting our
eyes and to ascending the heights… to becoming Jesus’ climbing companions.
We welcome you to come and gather
as a creative community – to explore our calling and create with beauty – that
we may fulfil Jesus’ Great Commission.
