Prayer is central to everything that we do at Ascension. It’s the very heartbeat of our community! We would love to encourage you to get involved in praying together as a church. The two main ways which we engage in prayer as a community are through our Sunday Service and our Monthly Prayer Meetings.

Outside of our Sunday Service our monthly prayer meetings are our most important gatherings. We meet to worship God and to pray for each other, Balham and beyond!

They are held on the first Tuesday of each month with supper at 7.30pm with prayer running from 8.00pm – 9.30pm.

We believe that prayer is powerful and that God wants us to pray for one another whether for healing, wisdom, guidance or for anything at all. There is space made available for prayer at the end of each Sunday Service. If you would like to make a prayer appointment outside of the services with one of the team just email

We meet on the first Wednesday of every month at 11am for an informal Communion Service. There are opportunities for prayer after this service and everyone is welcome.
