Prayer Praise SAIL

Be Inspired & Transformed

Celtic missionaries such as St Columba and St Fursey, crossed seas in small boats to pioneer new communities and find God in creation at the edges and margins. 

The Holy Spirit enabled them to discover their true selves, through harmonious connectedness with nature, and lead others to Jesus.

 Spending time at sea in prayer is transformative, and sailing pilgrimages are life changing for many.

'Tides of Blessing'
(Book of Pilgrimage 2019)

John McKenna’s fabulous and inspiring book written with Russ Fairman, retells the story of the Celebrate Round Britain Sailing Mission & Pilgrimage undertaken in 2019. The book gives witness to God’s plan and help in our lives, prophetically guided by the Holy Spirit.

Sue Whitehead, co-founder of Celebrate Catholic Charismatic Conferences, highly recommends the book. “I couldn’t stop reading this book once I started,” she wrote. “Such joy in every chapter – so many tangible descriptions of God’s presence on the journey. So many lives touched and changed by His Love.”

I would join Russ for a pilgrimage on the ocean again in a heartbeat, at the start of a pistol, by the signing up of my Father. If anyone gets the chance to do this kind of mission, my advice is don’t miss it. This changes your life for the richer. To know the Father is to be rich beyond your wildest dreams.
