The ways and values of the Celtic church, 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 such as, Whithorn, Iona and Lindisfarne, continue to resonate with many people today.
In the UK these values form the foundation of places such as The Bield in Perthshire, the Northumbria Community, Ffald y Brenin in Wales and Sannox in Arran, with a focus on the three inter-related areas of:
• personal devotion to God,
• hospitality and service to the community, and
• mission to the wider world.
There is a Christian heritage at Sannox going back several hundred years. As we develop a new house of prayer and worship, Sannox seeks to answer the call to rediscover the Ancient Paths and find rest for our souls (Jeremiah 6:16) continuing the ‘song’ God started in the 18th century.
Sannox is a work in progress. When completed, Sannox Christian Centre will have all the elements in the short video below. Progress to date is in the Development section. Will you join us in our journey?
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.

The Vision: the video below was created in 2012, before any renovation work on the existing buildings started.
In the 10 years since the Sannox project began, we have renovated Dundarroch Cottage to provide self-catering accommodation, added the gatehouse and a laundry room, and renovated the former church to provide a modern facility for prayer, worship, teaching and other activities.
The next stages are first to renovate the former Manse to provide more self-catering bedrooms, then to add the new buildings and facilities you see in the video.
Here is the work on Sannox so far
