Asylum is an independent non-denominational registered charity, made up of a small group of Alternative people aiming to share Christ’s love and acceptance within the Alternative community.
But before you rush away in horror…we are NOT religious. We’re Christ centred, spiritual, open minded and respectful of everyone’s beliefs. Our goal is to counter the hurt caused by negative Christian attitudes that some have experienced. We’ve no interest in judging or forcing anything down anyone’s throat.
There’s no preaching / sermons at Asylum. Instead we prioritize discussion, questions, and mutual sharing. People’s views vary on all sorts of subjects, so it makes for very interesting discussions, even when we agree to disagree on some things,
At Asylum, all are welcome as part of our family. Whether you’re straight or LGBT+, a follower of Christ or pagan, all are welcome.
THIS IS OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH :
We believe Jesus Christ is God, the Creator of the Universe and He is love.
We believe in the one God, consisting of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe we’re part of God’s family.
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died
on the cross and rose again.
We believe God longs to have a personal friendship with us.
We believe God forgives us when we mess up if we
ask him to.
We believe God has our best interests at heart.
We believe Jesus accepts us and wants to share in wherever we are in our journey with him.
OUR MISSION STATEMENT IS :
To bring the love and acceptance of Christ to Alternative people in London.
We have a weekly Sunday fellowship.
A bible study every other Sunday.
A monthly worship and praise time.
The fellowship is for Alternative people and those who either don’t fit in to conventional church, or want to know about Jesus.
Nobody preaches, instead different people facilitate discussions each week about subjects about everything from BDSM to depression, to the Holy Spirit.
We explore spirituality, offer support, prayer and a listening ear.
At our praise party On the 3rd Sunday we hang out together and explore different styles of worship that everyone brings. Music, poetry, art, psalms, etc. And we share communion too. No one is obligated to do or say anything.
EVERYONE IS VERY WELCOME
Monthly Online Dicipleship Group
Every second Sunday at 4pm.
This is for people who want to commit to following Jesus in a deeper way. It’s in addition to our standard weekly Asylum Fellowship and runs at the same time in a different Zoom room.
Tips to help avoid Zoom glitches...
1. Please sit near your internet modem /router, to strengthen signal.
2. When connecting to Zoom, click, “Join with computer audio” to be heard.
3. If you still have problems, please try using another device.
4. If using a mobile phone, PLEASE avoid moving it around. The smallest
sound is amplified by your phone microphone and distracts the group.
5. If you have background noise, please mute yourself when not speaking.
6. Use headphones to avoid echo /feedback to rest of the group.
7. Raise your hand before speaking to avoid talking over each other.

We’re a friendly bunch at Asylum, we don’t bite ( Unless you want us to! ) so if you’re new, make sure to say “Hi” to one of the crew (easily found wearing a crew badge) and we’ll make sure you get a special welcome!
