Ascension’s Altar Guild

A gift of time and talent to serve God in His hous

Members of the altar guild are grateful servants: servants of God, servants of God’s people, servants of the liturgy, and servants of the worship space.

The Guild serves by ensuring that the altar is prepared for each worship service. They usually operate in teams of 2-3 members and, apart from cleaning the altar area, they also clean and position the elements used during worship.

Proper provision of the holy Sacrament of Communion (Wine and bread) is another sacred part of their ministry. After each worship service, the proper removal and safe-keeping of the essential elements is also a part of their duties.

The Altar Guild is a very spiritual and full-filing ministry. The church is always seeking to accept and train more volunteers.
