Sanctum and Renewal
As a Collective Sanctum includes influences from charismatic renewal.
Recently people have raised significant questions around safeguarding and charismatic practice. If you have had an abusive experience of charismatic ministry please do speak to someone, we can put you in touch with appropriate safeguarding support.
In practice Sanctum has tended towards a liturgical and silent model of prayer ministry.
In my local context locally blessed oil is used and words of invitation are said corporately. People are then encouraged to pray by themselves or for each other in silence if they feel comfortable doing so.
Blessing of Oil
Be renewed by the Spirit
Enriched with health
of mind and body
Grant this through
Christ our Lord
Thank you that you delight in us and are pleased with us.
Father as you sent the Holy Spirit on your Son Jesus
Send your Holy Spirit to renew and refresh us.
Come Holy Spirit
