Ascension : The Anglican Church of Saint Mary the Virgin
Submitted by The Islander (Islander Editors) 23.01.2014 (Article Archived on 06.02.2014)

On walking from Georgetown past the police station towards Long Beach there is a building on the left hand side past the Church and Vicarage with no signage giving a clue as to its use.

 

The Anglican Church of Saint Mary the Virgin

 

What is that building?

On walking from Georgetown past the police station towards Long Beach there is a building on the left hand side past the Church and Vicarage with no signage giving a clue as to its use. I am often asked, especially by

newcomers to the island what it is used for.

 

The answer is that it is known as ‘The Children’s Church,’ having been used for that purpose for many years.  That has not been its only use

however, Parish Church Council meetings have been held there and other small groups attached to the church have made use of it. At a Church Council meeting in December it was unanimously decided the building be named “St Mary’s Church Hall.” Mrs Winifred  Bagley volunteered to make a signboard, the name being picked out in mosaics. This she has accomplished and the sign should be over the door by the time you next walk to Long Beach. A big thank you Winnie, we will be able to admire it for many years to come.
