Welcome to Sanctuary Events

Sanctuary Events is a Board of Education initiative which comprises a team of people who wish to help train and equip those who work with young people across our Diocese. Specifically, Sanctuary Events focuses on working alongside churches to establish youth events which are missional and aid discipleship amongst the young people in their congregation and local community.

What we offer

The Sanctuary Events team offer a wide range of services, see below for details of how we can help equip you:

Assist you in hosting a Sanctuary Event

If you are wishing to host your own youth event but aren’t sure where to start or would like some support then please fill out the inquiry form below. We can provide support, training and advice at each stage of the planning process, as well as assistance on the night. We seek to support you in establishing an event as part of your youth work provision which is sustainable, accessible and adaptable to the changing needs of young people.

Sanctuary Events Packages

A series of mix and match packages that can be run at local community events to create a ‘Sanctuary Space’ as part of that event. Equally they provide a taster of what we do and give an insight into the type of events you could run yourself. Perfect for tent or stall environments.

We can run one package or a mixture of them combined:

Prayer Spaces: Four interactive prayer activities

Games: Two games with a theological point

Cafe: An acoustic set with refreshments and Biblical input to provoke discussion

Sung Worship: A worship band set with a short talk and response activity.

Sanctuary Events Training

We host regular free training events throughout the year, covering a range of topics to help build confidence and knowledge on running youth events.

Sessions include: Top tips for running a youth event, the starting points, and how to build your event structure.
