Time  in community is fun, different, challenging and full of opportunities to grow and flourish. Support and friendship will be critical to the process. An important part of your year with us is the structure of support, mentoring and leadership we provide.

This scheme takes a lot of its inspiration from a modern interpretation of the Rule of Saint Benedict where the care of novices is paramount but is also a two-way process of learning and growing. 

The leadership and support team for 2020 onwards is..
