The Next 50 Campaign
The following strategic directions represent
a road map for expansion and renewal.
They are not in any order of priority, nor do they imagine that we are all things to all people. Rather, they assume a closer relationship with the Anglican Church of Canada, a redirection of existing resources and an investment of new resources in programs generated by Sorrento Centre.

Youth Leadership Development
- Build the summer youth staff as a leadership development program
- Create a Winter Youth Leadership Development program (WYLD) in partnership with PWRDF, Sorrento Centre farm & others
- Enable a Sabbath experience & reflective practice for diverse audiences: clergy & laity, families & parishes, writers, musicians & artists, non-profits and community based organizations
- General education for seekers and parish members, that nurtures our relationship with God, strengthens relationships across all generations & overcomes the separation of humanity from the rest of Creation
- Accessible education for licensed lay leaders and vocational deacons
Healing & Wholeness
- Promoting attention to spirituality as a path toward healing & wholeness
- Encouraging physical activity that integrates the spiritual and material worlds and that encourages us to listen to our feelings and our bodies
- Engaging with Aboriginal communities to facilitate reconciliation
- Healing our relationship with the rest of Creation by practising ecojustice
Creativity & the Arts
- Develop the Red Barn Art Studio using skilled artists in the company of others; and invite artists to be in residence throughout the year
- Nurture harmonious relations with all Creation by organically growing diverse crops on our farm, sharing our abundance with those most in need in our community and engaging people with a wide range of learning opportunities
- Review our current property holdings to ensure all assets are employed with maximum effectiveness in relation to the mission & vision.
