EQUIPPING THE CHURCH
TO SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH
AND WELLBEING

THE NEW SANCTUARY APP: TOGETHER AGAIN

Our newest resource for the UK is the Sanctuary app, featuring Together Again—a game to open conversations about wellbeing and faith.

Throughout lockdown, checking on each others’ wellbeing has been an important part of life together. Together Again continues this conversation as we move into a new season, generating questions to help us explore the challenges of the year, as well as the lighter moments. These questions are designed to help us connect with each other and pace our recovery. Discover a simple way to keep the wellbeing conversation alive in our faith communities and beyond with Together Again.

In the app you’ll find:

  • Together Again, a conversation-starting game
  • Links to emergency mental health support
  • Access to a suite of free Sanctuary resources to support faith and mental health
  • Ways to take the conversation further with The Sanctuary Course 

Download the app from the Apple App Store or the Google Play store using the links below, and be sure to share with your friends!

ABOUT SANCTUARY UK

“Sanctuary resources prepare communities of faith around the world to raise awareness, reduce stigma, support mental health, and promote mental wellbeing.”

Sanctuary Mental Health Ministries is a Christian charity that equips the Church to support mental health and wellbeing.
 
Having formed a number of fruitful partnerships with UK organisations working in the intersection of mental wellbeing and faith over the last two years, we are excited to now have a branch of Sanctuary operating in the UK. Our plan is to complement the ongoing work in the UK to grow healthier communities.
 
Sanctuary was founded in Canada in 2012. The primary tool we offer, The Sanctuary Course, launched in 2018 and has been used in churches across the world. This eight-session course for small groups explores mental health from psychological, social, and theological perspectives. The course includes discussion guides, and films featuring psychologists and theologians as well as people who share their lived experiences with mental health challenges.

We all know someone who lives with mental health challenges, or we may face challenges of our own. From June 12-18, we moved for mental health to raise awareness and funds for Sanctuary. Help us reach our giving goal before the end of June by giving through the fundraiser below. Every donation this summer will be matched, so your impact is doubled.

“Understanding and responding to experiences of mental health and mental health challenges is profoundly important for both Church and society. And yet, there seem to be relatively few voices and initiatives that really seek to engage with the issues both theologically and practically. Sanctuary Ministries is one of those prophetic voices that calls our attention to important things and seeks to equip God’s people to be the kind of healing community that they are intended to be. The work of this organisation is invaluable.”
