Sorrento Centre has always had partners in ministry. Together with groups who have similar values, we have reached out to create leaders in our communities.
The Quakers, the Pentecostal Assemblies of BC, and the BC Bluegrass Workshops are groups we have been in partnership with. Anglican Dioceses and the National Church have joint ventured many educational programs with us. Partnerships is how we continue to grow.
In recent years we have initiated partnership programs with parishes in Alberta and British Columbia. The parish takes charge of programming and its delivery for a whole summer week. It has been a tremendous success and we are pleased to welcome some parishes back for successive years.
Our partnerships have included the parishes of
