how to book our unique prayer space

individuals, churches and Christian groups are very welcome to book the Sanctuary's centre for worship, workshops and study days or outreach events when it is not being used for our core work.

This page explains the times that are generally available and how to get in touch with your request. (Details of how to find us, local parking, directions from Ilkley train station etc are here.)

  • Booking requests must be made in advance and received with at least two full weeks’ notice. To request to book the space, please contact us and we will respond to confirm availability as soon as possible.
  • The times of the week generally available for booking are Monday-Friday between 10am and 1pm and between 2pm and 5pm but those booking are always welcome to extend the time they are at the centre to include joining our rhythm of worship and prayer (Monday to Friday: 9-10am, 1-1.15pm and 5-5.15pm). See here for more details.
  • Other times including evenings and Saturdays are possible when the Sanctuary's core team has capacity to facilitate this and there are no other existing bookings.
  • (Please note that Sundays are never available as the space is then given back to All Saints' Church, who are generously making their building available to us.)
  • There is no fixed charge, but where possible donations towards our running costs, are gratefully received.
  • Please mention the specifics of any equipment or you would hope to have access to in full as part of your booking request.
  • When we’ve confirmed your booking, we will make arrangements with you regarding access etc and will arrange for one of our volunteer team to welcome you on arrival.
  • You can also book someone from the Sanctuary's team to plan and/or lead your event. This service is available at standard rates and is billed for by the individual doing this work in a freelance capacity. Please detail what you are hoping for in your request and we will come back with the fee required.
  • We reserve the right to refuse bookings that do not support the Sanctuary's vision.
