Here is what’s happening across our church
Alpha Launch night is Monday, May 9 at 6pm
If you are just beginning a spiritual journey or are interested in exploring Christian spirituality in a safe and open setting, Alpha might be for you.
WHAT IS ALPHA?
Alpha is a place where anyone can explore life and the Christian faith in a friendly, open, and informal environment. We share a meal together, watch a short film, and have an open and honest discussion about what it means to have faith. Alpha is an 8 week dinner and discussion series designed for people who wouldn’t describe themselves as Christians. Our team provide Alpha guests with exceptional hospitality and a friendly and respectful environment in which to discuss the big issues of life and the Christian faith.
WHO IS ALPHA FOR?
Alpha is for anyone who would not describe themselves as a Christian.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Alpha runs across ten weekly sessions with an optional weekend away midway through. Each session includes food, a short video and a discussion where guests can share their thoughts. The talks are designed to encourage conversation and explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly, open and informal environment. No question is out of bounds and everyone is free to discuss as much or as little as they wish. There’s no pressure, no follow up and no charge.
Sunday Watch Parties & Home Churches…
are a great way to experience church online together. Join with friends near and far to watch and discuss the Sunday sermon, build community and make new friendships.
The way of Jesus is meant to be walked together, and we are eager to – safely – provide ways to do this on Sundays.
There are 3 types of Watch Parties
- Home Parties
Small groups in homes or spaces watching together in person
- Facebook Parties
Virtually hosted and attended via Facebook
- Zoom Parties
Small groups gathering to watch together via Zoom
SUNDAY HOME CHURCH
Some of our midweek Home Churches have begun meeting in person on Sunday mornings. Following a home guide we sing, pray, and take communion together, streaming the message only.
Times and locations will be up soon – sign up below to be notified!
The FUTURE BUILDERS GALA is our thank you to all those who give regularly to help build the future of Sanctuary. Join us for this special night on November 22 to build a legacy together through our generosity.
The gala is where all 3 of our congregations come together for a night of new vision, dinner, dancing and stepping out together as a church to dream for PVD and beyond.
Let’s keep dreaming | 11.22 | 7pm

Over the summer the Providence Phoenix newspaper (think The Village Voice for PVD) came to our Sunday gathering and interviewed Pastor Andrew. We were grateful to have them write such an affirming and favorable article. (more…)
