Church Planting Family 
The Sanctuary Mississauga – Church Planting Family is a group of leaders in the Peel Region who have come together to see a movement in our city through church planting.
Our vision is simple: We are a family of churches giving ourselves away to see the Kingdom of God expanded in our region.
Currently, we are planting three churches together. 
   – Wadi Church
We are praying and working to be a part of seeing 6 churches planted over the next 5 years.

End It Movement – February 25, 2016
What an incredible night together as we gathered to “Shine A Light on Slavery.”  We gathered to pray, to share stories, to sing, to learn and to act.  Throughout the night, we saw people raise funds with the EndItMovement, we signed a petition against the Uzbek government and their cotton issues and we wrote letters to girls being rescued from being trafficked.
Here are some pictures from the night…
