Being community

Living, sharing and growing together

WHAT MAKES LEE ABBEY LONDON DIFFERENT?

Our residents are part of our family and our community WHO STAY HERE.

We are a community of Christians who seek to ‘communicate Christ through relationships’ in our work, worship and lifestyle. We come from many traditions and backgrounds.

The Lee Abbey London community consists of about 30 people. We serve and provide hospitality to about 170 international students who live here with us.

Our lifestyle as a community focuses on the following areas:

  • Daily corporate worship and prayer
  • Hospitality to students and guests
  • Discipleship of community members
  • Living with a mission

For us, our life together in community is an essential part living out and sharing the Gospel. We believe that we are ‘loved into life’ – the abundant life promised by Jesus – as we develop warm, supportive and accepting relationships with God and with one another.

Being part of Lee Abbey is hard work. It can be tiring, but it can also be very rewarding – particularly as you see God working through you to impact others.

So it’s important that all community members, regardless of their area of work and responsibility, feel called to be part of this community and that they engage in all aspects of community life.
