Adam and Cath Osborne

Apostolic Leaders / Co-Founders

Adam and Cath Osborne are the Apostolic Leaders and Co-founders of Sanctuary. They live to move the heart of God. Cath flows in a prophetic, shepherding and worship calling, focused wholeheartedly on intimacy with Jesus. Adam walks in the Prophet calling with an apostolic grace and his heart is for building up the body to maturity. They reside in the Blue Mountains Australia. They are the Overseers of ‘The Centre of Kindness and Grace’ in Moss Vale and ‘Lighthouse Ridge Church’ in Western Sydney.

(Adam suffered a life changing event in May 2021 and is still recovering from that time)


Sanctuary is supported by
devoted leaders, elders, prayer
and ministry teams.

We see leadership as a full restoration of the full-fold released in Ephesians 4. This is where apostolic, prophetic, evangelistic, shepherding and teaching cultures are in full functioning order within God’s kingdom. This is the only way to build each believer into maturity and  devotion to Jesus.

We see it as linking arms and empowering people – the body of Christ. We see it as kingdom circles where inclusion and empowerment grow. As these circles ebb and flow, relationships deepen, transformation blossoms and renewal bursts forth.

We believe that devoting our lives to a Psalm 27:4 reality is the ultimate act of worship.
