Explore your spirituality

"Our journey through life is a busy one. It is through solving problems correctly that we grow spiritually.  We are never given a burden unless we have the capacity to overcome it. If a great problem is set before you, this merely indicates that you have the great inner strength to solve a great problem. There is never really anything to be discouraged about, because difficulties are opportunities for inner growth, and the greater the difficulty the greater the opportunity for growth." Peace Pilgrim

Hospitality and community 

As Christians, inviting the stranger into our lives as well as being hospitable to those who are already in our lives is part of who we are. Having a right approach to how we treat one another, and welcoming each person as Christ himself, is key to creating a healthy sense of hospitality. All our churches offer hospitality after many of our services. 

Stability in your busy life of change 

Benedictine monks and nuns take a Vow of Stability, which refers to the importance of community and commitment in life. For us it refers directly to a commitment to the rhythms of our church year. While we may not be a member of a monastic order, we can make our vow of stability to our families, to our faith communities, to our local and global communities, and to our fellow pilgrims along the journey of faith. The vow of stability also speaks to our current environmental crisis—for when we remain committed to the earth we learn how to be good stewards of that which God has given us.

Helping you discern what matters to you 

Pastoral care is an ancient model of emotional and spiritual support that can be found in all cultures and traditions. It has been described in our modern context as individual and corporate patience in which trained pastoral carers support people in their pain, loss and anxiety, and their triumphs, joys and victories.
