Our Facilities

The Ascension Centre (TAC) is based in the Church of the Ascension in Malvern, Worcestershire which is part of the Parish of Malvern Link with Cowleigh ( . The church was built in the early 20th century by Sir Walter Tapper and is modeled on a 13th century Cistercian monastery.

As part of our building and development plans we have recently installed a toilet and kitchenette in the church to provide better facilities for guests and worshippers. The church is part of the active ministry of the Parish and provides numerous opportunities for worship.
