The Sanctuary is based at Te Ara Hou Village and is spiritually guarded by Anglican Action.

Formerly known as The Friary of The Divine Compassion, The Sanctuary offers an expansive building with spaces for various practices away from the day-to-day activities of everyday life.


The Sanctuary facilitates breathing and mindfulness sessions, and holds space for spiritual retreats. These are lead and facilitated by spiritual leaders and provide an opportunity of wellbeing for staff.

Waananga are also facilitated on-site at The Sanctuary. This provides a space that is removed, peaceful and allows for focus.

The Sanctuary is available to all. Please contact Anglican Action for more information about The Sanctuary.
