Asylum is an independent nondenominational registered charity, made up of a small group of Alternative people aiming to bring Christ’s love and acceptance to 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.
We know many Alternative people have been hurt by negative attitudes of some Christians. So, we’re trying to undo some of that damage (but we too make mistakes as we’re human!)
We’ve no interest in judging people or forcing anything down anyone’s throats.
There’s no preaching at Asylum. Instead we have discussions that everyone can join in with and ask questions, share or contribute.
As people have many different views in Asylum, on everything from being gay or transgender to drinking alcohol, it makes for very interesting discussions.
BUT…even though we may agree to disagree on some things, Asylum is still a family where everyone is accepted and respected.
It doesn’t matter if you follow Christ or not ( we’ve had pagans, atheists, satanists etc pop in). EVERYONE IS VERY WELCOME
As well as our trustees, Asylum is run by a dedicated crew of volunteers who help out.
Contact us if you’d like to get involved.

The fellowship is for Alternative people and

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.

Tips to help avoid potential Zoom glitches…
1. Please try to sit near your internet modem/router, for a stronger connection.
2. When connecting to Zoom, select “Join With Computer Audio” so you’re heard.
3. If you still can’t hear anyone, or have other problems, 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 is distracting to the group.
5. If you have alot of background noise, please mute yourself and then unmute when you speak.
6. Please use headphones to avoid echo /feedback to the rest of the zoom group.
7. Please raise your hand before speaking so we avoid talking over each other.
Our monthly club nights are unique, as resident Asylum DJ’s only play a selection of the best Punk, Metal, Goth, Industrial etc, by artists who are followers of Christ.
Some you may know…Alice Cooper, Evanescence, Bless The Fall. Skillet, Megadeth, Cell Dweller, Wasp, Type 0 Negative, Papa Roach, Eva O, P.O.D.
And others you may not.. Demon Hunter, Voxis, Awakening, Circle Of Dust,
Headnoise, Icon For Hire. Nerve etc.
Entry is free along with free Fairtrade chocolate. Yes! FREE CHOCOLATE. But if you’re especially hungry, Garlic & Shots serve a great selection of food.
We’re a friendly bunch at Asylum, we don’t bite ( Unless you want us too! ) 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!
If you'd like more info, or you'd like to volunteer with us, then get in touch!
