If this is your first time at Sanctuary, we're honored to have you here.
WHERE IS SANCTUARY CHURCH?
We meet in the Portola Garden District of San Francisco:
2555 San Bruno Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94134
WHAT TIME ARE YOUR SERVICES?
We meet every Sunday at 10am.
HOW LONG ARE YOUR SERVICES?
Our services usually last 90 minutes and are over by noon. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, and often several of us often like to grab lunch or head for a picnic after the gathering.
WHERE DO I PARK?
There’s usually street parking in the neighborhood and a parking lot nearby on Felton street. There’s also Muni bus service to the area.
WHAT ARE YOUR SERVICES LIKE?
We start by singing 2-3 songs and then one of our members delivers a message based on a passage of the bible. We incorporate some liturgical elements, as well as leave room for people to freely share what they sense God putting on their heart.
Because Jesus instructed his followers to regularly receive communion (bread and wine), we will often have a time for this. Finally, we usually end with an opportunity to receive prayer.
If you’re visiting for the first time, you’ll want to give yourself a few extra minutes to grab a coffee before service at our kitchen table. We’d love to meet you, answer any questions you may have and give you a gift.
DO I HAVE TO [SING / TALK / RECEIVE COMMUNION / PRAY / ETC.]?
Absolutely not! You are our guest and we want you to feel comfortable. There’s freedom to participate in as much or as little of the service as you’d like. If you want to just sit and observe, that’s fine by us. In particular, receiving communion is meant for those who consider themselves followers of Jesus.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Don’t feel like you have to dress up. Most people wear casual attire, but you’re welcome to wear whatever makes you comfortable. Check out our Instagram page to get a feel for what most people wear on Sundays.
WHAT ABOUT MY KIDS?
Sanctuary Kids is a safe, clean and fun space for kids age 0-5th grade to discover God’s great love in Jesus. Every classroom is a safe, age-appropriate environment where your kids can make friends, learn the Bible, and cultivate a heart for God.
All kids start out in the main auditorium for sung worship with the adults. After the music, the kids are dismissed and welcomed into our kids room.
Save some time on your first visit and make checking kids into class easy by pre-registering here.
