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.

The art of love made known - installations
Initially born through our first premises' shop-front, we're now exploring lots of new ways for our art installations to take flight... temporarily using empty high street units in different locations, holding exhibitions and engaging in street outreaches. While you're waiting for more news, enjoy browsing the complete 6 Church Street collection with this special souvenir gift resource celebrating what God taught us about communicating the gospel in beautifully transparent ways whilst we were there.

The art of love made known - creative outreach gifts
We've found giving shoppers, key figures in the community and local business owners something truly generous - that we've designed and crafted as bespoke - has really blessed them. Beautiful, simple gifts given on shared celebration occasions such as Valentine's Day, Yorkshire Day, Christmas or Halloween, have brought smiles and opened hearts to the precious message they carry.

Sharing the story - short allegory give-aways
We've found 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

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!
