DAILY PRAYER

The day begins and ends with prayer  along with time for silence and contemplation. This is at the heart of what we do. In the house we have set aside a special place for doing this.

COMMUNITY LIFE

A big part of the Interns' time is living in the community house, Swallows Nest, Malborough. Interns eat, shop, study, pray and manage the house together, as well as investing in each other. A chaplaincy team is there to support and mentor you.
