The Community is offering the opportunity to women and men to live and work alongside the Sisters.

Alongsiders stay with the Community for an agreed period of time, sharing something of the Community’s life, including prayer, worship and some aspects of work.

This initiative is for those who need or who would like to find space and stillness. It is particularly open to those who are in sympathy with and have an interest in the tradition of the Anglican Religious life. Would you like to learn more about the Community’s ethos, values and way of life, and the way it looks outwards to the needs of the world?

There is also regular opportunity to reflect and share on the experience of being an Alongsider with a Sister.

Being an Alongsider may prove challenging both to you and to us, but we hope it will bring a mutual sense of new life, and echo the words of Jesus: “I come to give you life and give it abundantly.” John 10:10.

We would ask for a modest contribution towards your keep.
