The Church of the Ascension Collier Row, part of the Diocese of Chelmsford, sits at the heart of the community on Collier Row Road reaching out to all parts of the community responding to human need by loving service.

The church is in partnership with local churches to run the Collier Row and Romford foodbank. This foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. .

We are committed to Safeguarding Children, Young People, Victims/perpetrators of Domestic Abuse and Vulnerable Adults. The PCC has adopted the Church of England’s policies and best practice on safeguarding which may be found on The Church of England’s website or the Chelmsford Diocese's website.
