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.

Situated on a beautiful historic 24-acre main campus, with a private waterfront on the Shuswap, hiking trails and nearby biking routes, Sorrento Centre has evolved a values-based retreat and conference centre, welcoming small groups and individual guests for courses and retreats throughout the year.

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