I have seen you in your sanctuary and gazed upon your power and glory.Your unfailing love is better than life itself; how I praise you!   
Psalm 63:2-3


The Sanctuary is a safe and authentic space for for spiritual exploration and growth, facilitated by Tim and Kerri Sweetman. It is a place where we welcome the presence of God and invite him to do his transformative work in our lives. 

We value connection with God, ourselves and each other and discovering what it means to experience wholeness and freedom, and step into the abundant life Jesus offers. We believe that great healing and redemption can occur as we seek the love and heart of God, listen to His voice and journey together as a safe, accepting and supportive community.

We meet at Ashgrove West Uniting Church, Corner of Glory Street and Waterworks Road Ashgrove West.

Limited on-site and street parking is available. Public parking is available behind the Ashgrove Fire Station next to Ashgrove State School (entrance via Waterworks Road to the left of the main school entrance).

3:00pm – Worship, prayer and reflection

A time to experience the presence of God in authentic community, worship and pray.

A restful and contemplative space were we value journeying honestly together with God and each other, sharing what God is doing in our lives and exploring how we can partner with Him in His transformative work. 

The usual format includes afternoon tea, worship, personal reflection, and a time of discussion and prayer. The space is informal, non-threatening, accepting and encouraging for anyone on a faith journey, whether younger or older, newer or longer!

As we meet together, seek God and open our hearts to him, we continue to experience God in new ways as he speaks to each of us individually and as a group. We also continue to see God answer our heartfelt prayers in profound and powerful ways.
