about sanctus.

We are a new sacramental, alt.worship community, aka 

a fresh-expression of Church (fxC), found on the edge

of the New Forest in Hampshire. 

We are for the dechurched (used to go), unchurched (never been), and anyone to be found on the edges

of the local church (pop-in at Christmas and Easter).

Sanctus could be what you’re looking for...

You are so welcome to come along and journey

with us and we hope you find a way to belong.

our vision

To encourage confidence and vitality in living the mission of Jesus Christ; particularly with those who identify as the ‘missing generation’.

We characterise ourselves as missional, sacramental, incarnational and inclusive.

Sanctus Be the Church 2.jpg

we seek to meet with God

  • by considering the person of Jesus; what he meant for others and, above all, what he means for us today,

  • by breaking bread together – through the mystery of the Eucharist, 

  • through prayer and the outpouring of his grace,

  • through vibrant singing worship.

Using multisensory resources and technology as part of our offering,

we engage in lively worship music, and equally, times of silence…

Allowing the opportunity to meditate, contemplate and reflect on God’s Word and its relevance for our lives.

We regularly interact with the arts in a liturgical context, through the use of poetry, artwork, film and music.
