This coming Wednesday 7th September Sanctuary First will be live-streaming from the Acoustic Cafe in 7 Melville Lane, Falkirk. It is hoped this will be the first of many in different venues all around the country.
They also hope that this will be a touching place for those who use Sanctuary First to come and meet each other.
This Wednesday Rachel Zylstra, a New York singer/songwriter will be featured live along with an interactive Bible Study based around some verses in Matthew chapter 5, looking specifically at Christian Identity based on the Beatitudes. This week’s theme will be ‘loss’.
You can watch this event live and online from 7 – 8.30 on Wednesday evening. If you have not yet made it over the door of a church, or it’s been a while since you have done so, why not drop into the Cafe or listen and take part online. Sanctuary First is not looking for regular church attenders, but people who may have given up on church but not the Lord.
Please also keep this event in your prayers this week. If you haven’t checked out the Sanctuary First webpage go to www.sanctuaryfirst.org.uk or check them out on Facebook.
