Life Ascending was introduced into Australia in 1999. Groups have been set up in a number of parishes mostly in Sydney but also in other cities.

For members with a computer or access to one, for those who have time to spare or for those long winter months there is a chance to become an armchair author and write your autobiography. http://www.autodotbiography.com The website created by Bryher Scudamore, is an easy step by step method of writing your life story to leave to your children and grand children. It guides you through every phase of your life with a separate column giving historic notes on every year for reference. You can drop in photographs and birth certificates. Look up the website and you can try a sample demo which shows you how easy it is. What you won’t appreciate on line is how handsome the finished hardback book is. It is something you will be very proud of and become a family treasure. It does cost £250, but the cost of publishing a book of this quality would be far in excess of this amount. Autodotbiography was voted the best digital new idea of 2012 in the Prince of Wales awards. Bryher deserves to win the 2014 award as well.
