Bringing church walls down
Sanctuary is the name for the Sunday evening gathering at St John’s Hoxton and the community linked to it, with a particular emphasis on students and young professionals in Hoxton. It’s also my church.
It’s mission is to create something that doesn’t just stay inside the church building for ‘church people’ but impacts the whole of the vibrant neighbourhood - full of creatives, entrepreneurs and influencers in charities and political organisations. We wanted to explore how to build community in one of the loneliest cities on earth. Over the next year we’re building three communities focusing on: the arts, sports/fitness and social justice.
