Who We Are

Christ Church of the Ascension (CCAAZ) is a member parish of the Episcopal Church in the United States, and the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona. We are located in the heart of Paradise Valley, Arizona at the base of serene Camelback Mountain in Phoenix.

Our Phoenix, AZ parish rests on Four Foundations of the Christian life: Worship, Service, Education and Giving.

Worship – We give regular praise and thanksgiving to God through the many worship services offered: Sunday Eucharist, weekday Evening Prayer, mid-week Eucharist and special Festival Commemorations.

Service – We believe service to others is an integral part of the Christian faith. We strongly encourage our members to get involved with an outreach ministry to those in need in the Phoenix, AZ area. See Service tab for examples of service inside and outside of CCAAZ

Education – The motto “Christians are made, not born, is the basis of our goal to provide high-quality Christian education for our entire community. “Education” and “Family Ministries” tabs provide more information.

Giving – We believe that in thanksgiving for the life which God has given us in Jesus Christ, it is our duty to help support the parish and its ministries through financial giving.

Our setting is beautiful and our programs are thoughtfully planned. The best way to know this Christ Church is to visit with us and meet the people of CCAAZ. Please accept our invitation to worship with us any Sunday.
