About Us

The Church of the Ascension started our first service on the third storey of St Andrew’s School (now the Diocesan Centre) in 1952. Ten years later, we moved to our own building at the adjacent site in Woodsville. The “church on top of the hill” actively ministered to St Andrew’s School and to the farms and residences around the Potong Pasir pond in our earlier days and watched the area grow and develop into the bustling town it is today.

From our current location in the heart of St Andrew’s Village (SAV), we have the privilege to continue ministering and serving our community in Potong Pasir. We launched The Ascension Kindergarten and Ascension Kindercare, provide chaplaincy and pastoral services to the schools and boarding house and together with Chapel of the Resurrection and Chapel of the Holy Spirit, organise and run the ComLink Community programmes.

Our presence extends well beyond our regular Sunday Services. We invite you to not only join us in the pages of this website but also visit us in SAV. COA welcomes you.
