Ascension Balham

Ascension is a church community based near Clapham South tube station in London.

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.

The Ascension is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officers. The Diocese of Southwark’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
