creative outreach

as love for God's world has become an increasing focus in our worship, so our creatives have found this love leading them to take worship out into the world

All our collective's creative ideas come out of our prayer times - some become resources to help the church capture more of God's heart for the world; some become a kind of accidental evangelism, that beckons the world into worship by revealing more of God's heart for all people.

Sharing all our loving secrets
After several years of exploring creative outreach through art installations in windows, busking, giving out bespoke gifts and more, we've tried to distill and share our top ten tips for sharing God's love in creative ways
into a practical input resource you can use in your context.

The art of love made known - installations
Initially born through our first premises' shop-front, we're now exploring new ways for our art installations to take flight... Meanwhile, enjoy browsing this special souvenir gift resource celebrating how God taught us to communicate the gospel in beautifully transparent ways

The art of love made known - creative outreach gifts
We've found giving shoppers, public services and local business owners something truly generous has really blessed them. Beautiful, bespoke gifts  on shared celebrations  have brought smiles and opened hearts to the precious message they carry. Browse previous examples in our gallery

Sharing the story - short allegory give-aways
We've discovered our beautiful stories inspired by sand, pottery, blossom, wooden toys and three wonderful weavers have been a huge blessing to passers-by we've given them too. Browse our story-windows and give-aways here

Introducing sparrow song - blessed are the buskers
Jazz singers Anya and Liz make up this duo which takes heavenly harmonies and hope-filled lyrics beyond the walls of the Sanctuary's base and out into public spaces such as streets, shopping centres and bandstands. Visit their page to listen to a sample

Ministry of encouragement
We've found designing and hand-writing bespoke messages of encouragement, thanks and celebration to public figures at key times has had a profound impact. Read what we got up to during GE2017 here

Emerging plans, including creative digital engagement
Watch this space for some new creative evangelism projects coming soon. September 2017 marks the start of a new season for the Sanctuary when new ways working and a new base in a less public location will release more capacity to support additional creative ventures to share the gospel off and online. We can't wait to get going and share what we're planning!
