Sanctum 2018 – Come and Be Involved. #Pioneer

Come and experience a Church Year all within a few days!

24th-26th July 2018

Summer is nearly here and that means we are approaching Sanctum 2018! This is a fantastic retreat/gathering or sacramental alt:worshippers. If you have never been to The Community of the Resurrection, it takes place in the idyllic monastic setting of The Community of the Resurrection in the heart of the Pennines!This year we are exploring the seasons so you can expect a bit of Christmas, a bit of Easter and a bit of…. All of the seasons.What can you expect? Some new ways of engaging with worship. Every year, I find that someone introduces me to God in a new and exciting way. Some of those ways inform how we do it back in our own context – but that doesn’t mean it’s just for ordained ministers. Whether you lead worship or just want to come along and experience something different, this is for you!

The collaborative nature of Sanctum means that you can bring your own prayer station with you or get involved with acts of worship that other people are creating!  If you’ve always wanted to get involved but don’t know where to start, this is a really encouraging space to do that in.

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. – Participant from 2017

There are also opportunities to share throughout the week with workshops and the obligatory socialising.

And the shameless plug is that Metanoia are doing the Christmas Service with added Rock!!

Sanctum 2017: Book Now

It’s that time of year again where we are preparing for Sanctum.  It is a great place to discuss alternative worship in a sacramental tradition.  There are some really great contributors this year and there are a few places left to book as well!  The programme includes a blessing of the waters down at the river, exposition, eucharist and Rock Mass Unplugged.

The monastery at Mirfield is an idyllic location for a few days of contemplation and quiet if you would like to engage with the worship whilst having space for private reflection.

Oh yeah.  There’s also gin tasting.
