It is with regret that in the light of the Covid-19 virus the Directors have decided to close Sannox Christian Centre initially for a period of 3 months from today (19/3/2020) for all guests, hosts and visitors. We have made this decision based on the latest Government guidelines and a desire to protect people who would come to the centre and the island community. We will be monitoring the situation closely over this period and will post updates on our website and through our Friends of Sannox network.
There is a renewed interest in the way the Celtic church operated and the values it espoused. Their ways and values have struck a chord today with many people and have found form in places in the UK such as The Bield in Perthshire, the Northumbria Community and Ffald y Brenin in Wales. This is mirrored across European places like Taize and Bose. These places have taken to heart the Celtic focus on the three inter-related areas of personal devotion to God, hospitality and service to the community and mission to the wider world as practiced by the Desert Fathers and Mothers in the early centuries of the Christian church and the Celtic missions which operated out of places like, Whithorn, Iona and Lindisfarne. The proposal for a Christian house of prayer and worship at Sannox is founded on these principles. Sannox seeks to answer the call to rediscover the Ancient Paths and find rest for our souls (Jeremiah 6:16). It builds on the Christian heritage of Sannox and continues the song God started in the 18th century and at the beginning of the 19th Century.

Always, there has been a special sense of peace and fresh inspiration to “keep the spiritual fires burning” in seeking to live and experience more of the Kingdom of God in daily living.
Drawing on that rich spirituality from the past, Sannox seeks to explore and help people discover the treasures of prayer, worship, hospitality and community in our changing world.
I’ve seen the development of Sannox as Christian Centre over the years, observed the incredible journey of faith and been there for retreats.
…a place where you could meet with God in ways that were not possible elsewhere.
…the daily rhythm of prayer and worship is so helpful in reminding you to remain present to God and to yourself.
