Apartment Searching

Today I accompanied a friend of mine to an apartment viewing here in London. He has been homeless, sleeping wherever he can, for about a month now. We’ve spent a ton of time looking for bachelor apartments. Living with a house mate(s) has just been too hard for him in the past. While looking on […]

Holiday Hours

At Sanctuary, we call our community family, and what better time to spend with family than the holidays! For that reason we strive to be open as much as we can throughout the holiday season. Our rough programming hours are below: Sunday December 24, 2017 – Combined Worship Service with Talbot Street Church @ 6pm […]

When you know you’re loved.

Sunday night worship services at Sanctuary might just look a little different than a typical church’s Sunday service. We spend about half of our time openly sharing as a community, sometimes requesting songs that fit, praying for one another, often sharing deep pain, and laying it all down before the Father.

Where is Grace?

At 8:30 this morning I was supposed to meet our friend Grace at the Sanctuary office to go to court together. I came a few minutes early, just in case she came early. I didn’t want her to knock on a locked door and risk having her walk away, especially on such a cold morning. […]

Welcome Breezey!

This past Sunday at Sanctuary’s weekly worship service, we announced our intentions of hiring Breezey Allen as our first permanent female staff member. We have been praying and asking God for a woman to join our team for some time now, and we couldn’t be more thankful! We first met Breezey at our annual Christmas […]
