We are called to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ and equip others for the task of evangelisation.

 

Guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we seek to be a prophetic sign of hope through our work, words and witness of life.

We are a community of disciples on mission, laity and clergy working together to make the Good News of Jesus Christ known.

For more than 30 years we have been running parish missions and school missions across the UK. Alongside our school ministry, we also run programmes to enable young people and families to grow in faith.

At our residential training centre SENT in Brentwood Essex, we run a variety of courses including the popular Beloved weekends for women.

Our journey

Our journey

Conceived on 8 December 1984, Sion Community has offered parish missions since 1985, and in the 1990s grew to offer secondary and primary school missions and residential events at SENT. 

In the year 2000, we birthed a sister community, Céilí, in Ireland, where our founder, Mgr Pat Lynch, now lives. Currently, we are working in a number of partnerships: TEM – a new evangelisation project in Lithuania, theASCENT – a discipleship process for Catholic young people, Sawyer’s Church – a local ecumenical outreach. 

We work under the authority of the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales and have three patron bishops -Archbishop Bernard Longley, Bishop Alan Morris and Bishop David Oakley.
