The Sion Community

I want to introduce a Community that I have had the pleasure of meeting on a number of occasions. My first experience of this Community came about through a Mission Week. The Evangelists  were hosted by volunteer families from the receiving  parish .

The Mission had a two-pronged focus: the parents and children of that parish.  The Good News reached both the parents and children of the parish simultaneously, and boy, their Good News was electrifying! The Holy Spirit was present in them and worked through them in their work so much so that their love for Jesus was tangible. That experience left me changed forever. For more details on a Mission Week, please contact the Community directly.

My second encounter with them was not as intimate but just as powerful.   I urge anyone with a hunger for the Lord to investigate their webpage and to make contact with them. Here is the link: http://www.sioncommunity.org.uk/

Something to whet your appetite : I received an email on Friday from the Maryvale Institute in Birmingham, advertising a ”Foundations for Mission’ weekend with Mgr Peter Hocken – 28th & 29th January. This will be held at the Sion Community and is sure to be life-changing and unforgettable.

See you there!

    If anyone needs any information out of them such as, say, what was the title of a certain piece of music at a mission of theirs, or any other questions harder than `What is your name ?`, expect a long wait for an answer. If you are very lucky, you may get one.

    I know exactly what you mean Peter. A friend of mine wrote to them 3 years ago and more than once and still awaits a reply. For myself, I had to write 4 emails with suggestions for improvement in their missions (and much improvement was needed), eventually getting a reply that was patronising in the extreme. I would have thought that a communication skill was a cornerstone of any mission society.
