CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION
Church of the Ascension started as a mid-week Holy Communion Service for staff and students of St. Andrew’s School after World War II. It was only in 1952 that this Service was renamed as Church of the Ascension (COA).
COA moved to its current site on Ascension Day in 1962. The church building is conserved as a national heritage building and is also known as the “church on the hill”. It was the place where residents of Potong Pasir sought refuge in the 1960s whenever there were floods.
Today, COA provides chaplaincy support to the students at Ascension Kindergarten, Little Seeds Preschool (Ascension) and St. Andrew’s Junior School. COA strives to be a light for Christ in Potong Pasir and the newly developed estate of Bidadari.
