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 […]
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 […]
