Easter Service and Open Afternoon at Sannox Christian Centre
For the third year running,Sannox Christian Centre will hold an Easter Sunday service in Sannox Church for the communities on Arran. For the past two years we have been blessed by many coming to the service, filling the church both years. We are so blessed by the continuing support of the local communities and look forward to worshipping together at Easter this year.
The service begins at 2.00 pm with the ringing of the church bell. Following the service, which will last about 45 minutes, tea, coffee and cake will be served in Dundarroch. Members of Sannox Christian Centre will be on hand to offer hospitality, explain what has been happening over the past year and talk about the coming year’s activities.Visitors will be able to look around Dundarroch, the Church, the Gatehouse and the grounds.
Since last year two bedrooms in Dundarroch have been refurbished with en suite facilities added. A new kitchen, albeit temporary, has been constructed andwe have also fitted a smoke alarm system throughout the building.
When finance becomes available, the next phase of our plans is the refurbishment of the living room, the dining room area and two further en suite bedrooms.This will complete the building works for Dundarroch.
We have also submitted an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for the church and manse. The application is for the restoration of the church and manse roof and the bell tower. We hope to hear from the HLF in the summer. The church roof and bell tower are badly leaking and need to be sealed as soon as possible. It also stops any works inside the church and manse, so it is vital this work is carried out as soon as possible.
We continue to develop links with descendants of Sannox in Canada. Fiona and George Hazel have just returned from Megantic County and New Brunswick, visiting the sites of the first emigrants in 1829/30 and meeting their descendants. Fiona and George will be present on Easter Sunday to talk about their latest trip and show some photos as well.
All are warmly invited to join us on Easter Day.
We look forward to welcoming you to Sannox Christian Centre on Easter Sunday to celebrate together our Lord’s resurrection.
