About us

Sorrento Centre is a gathering place for all… a place of abundance and belonging…

Founded in 1963 by visionaries within the Anglican Church of Canada, the Sorrento Centre has grown over the years from its beginnings as a lay ministry training centre to its current role as a gathering place for all.

We are proud of our Anglican traditions, warm and inclusive in our welcome and generous in our hospitality.

Throughout the year, we welcome thousands of day visitors and overnight guests for specialized programs offered by our beloved Centre, for a wide variety of events and activities from fibre arts to music to writing, and for those seeking healing and rest and relaxation in one of the most beautiful parts of Canada.
