‘Song of the Island’ CD – Francis McFaul and Fresh Manna

Our friend Francis McFaul has released a beautiful new album, ‘Song of the Island’, featuring 14 original songs, and is a musical journey celebrating 200 years of Christian witness at Sannox in particular.  The highlight of the album for several people is the song, ‘Celtic Storm’, which invites the church to arise from its slumber…part lament, part worship, part prophetic call to a significant future. We have copies available at Sannox for £5, plus postage and packing.  Contact us to order. Copies are also available from Francis.  Visit his website here.

Prayer News June 2022

Sannox Prayer News – June “Well done, good and faithful servant”   [Matt 25:21] Last month we wrote about God’s faithfulness, and the faithfulness (and faith!) of all involved in the Sannox project since its beginnings. Having watched on Thursday the excellent Trooping of the Colour, the Mall thronged with thousands of folk and the powerful tribute flypast over Buckingham Palace at the start of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, I was reminded strongly once again about faith and faithfulness – this time the faith and faithfulness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11. Politicians and Prime Ministers come and go, and
