Spreading the Love of God to Balham & Beyond

Welcome to Ascension Church

Ascension is a church community based near Clapham South tube station in London, and online with people joining in from all over the world.

At this church you’ll find a real mix of people from a variety of places, age groups and backgrounds and with all kinds of different interests and quirks. We are driven by the conviction that God loves every human being and together we try our best to share this love in and around our community. Whoever you are and whatever you believe, you are welcome at our Church. Please come exactly as you are.

Sunday Service at 10.30am

STYLE | A family friendly, informal service starting with tea and coffee from 10:15am FORMAT | We sing worship songs together, listen to a talk on part of the Bible (up to 30 minutes) and take time to pray (in the context of communion, more sung worship or in quiet). ATTIRE | There is no dress code for our services.  Whether you’re comfortable in an evening gown or board-shorts, please come as you are. Still confused? Check out our ‘what to expect‘ page.

Children are welcome at Ascension. At our Sunday morning service we provide a space in which kids delight in playing with friends, know they are loved by God, learn how to follow Jesus every day and experience the Holy Spirit. We also think it’s important for children and young people to have time worshiping together with the whole Church family after which they go into groups. We also have a crèche for the under 3s and all our children’s workers are fully DBS checked to ensure maximum child safety in all our activities.
