A network of emerging sacramental  
practitioners and dreamers. 
To worship, recharge,
share ideas, pray and support in mission. 

Who are we?

The Sanctum Collective is a coming together of various strands of creative mission, worship and community: Alternative Worship, Sacramental Fresh Expressions, New Monasticism and Anglo-Catholic Renewal. 
We recognise that Pioneers are found in diverse roles and contexts, Parish Churches, Cathedrals, New Communities and Church Plants. We recognise that Sacramental Mission is naturally at home in a blended economy.

We hold a main gathering yearly in July at Mirfield which is open to any who wish to contribute. 
As individuals and as a network we are available to support and resources others especially through Sanctum Connect.

On this site you can find out about us, read about our story, enjoy our gallery, and network further.

Sanctum is a great space to explore where God is leading us as creative people who find Him in the sacraments. It is a place to be inspired to experiment with new ideas in the coming years.
