Supporting Sanctuary First
You can support our work by making a donation. It is a quick and simple process and you can donate a one off gift, or give a regular amount every month.
We are passionate about offering fresh and engaging ways to connect with people who are unfamiliar, or perhaps all-too-familiar with church, but who wish to interact with prayer, the Bible, spirituality, and one another without feeling under pressure to conform to a stereotype of Christianity. It is important to us to make these resources freely available to be as accessible and inclusive as possible. We also want to maintain a standard of creativity, innovation and quality in our output that helps our resources be attractive, relevant and engaging.

Developing Sanctuary First
The cost of maintaining Sanctuary First in its current form amounts to approximately £120,000 per annum. Your donation can help us:
- provide a daily worship resource to a wide group of people, many of whom feel disconnected or disengaged from conventional church
- use social media in creative ways to build Christian community, across Scotland and around the world
- equip the wider church to participate in digital media and engage with and build vibrant community, through training and consultancy
- produce innovative resources such as teaching themes, poems, reflections, blog posts, podcasts and high quality short films
- put on a range of dynamic events for people to attend in person and to stream online this includes the weekly Coffee Shop, Sunday Live, The Weekly Review and the Friday Jam Sessions.
- cover our administrative and technical running costs
