Our Life and Work

The Community of the Resurrection consists of men who, freely accepting the call of God, have committed themselves to follow the gospel life. The pattern is recorded in the Acts of the Apostles, of whom it is said:

they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers‘ and ‘had all things in common.

The Community’s contemporary mission continues to radiate from Mirfield. We live together as brothers in Christ, rooted in the Anglican tradition and formed in a Benedictine round of worship, ministry and hospitality.

We welcome others to come, see, learn and share.

Worship is the heart of our life, centred on the Eucharist, daily offices and individual prayer. The tradition of Gregorian chant is part of our drawing on the wells of the Church’s continuity. The life of monastic communities, ours included, is immensely valued today as a constant praying presence, always there for the support of others.

Visit or Stay

We welcome you to come to CR and to share in our life. Some come regularly to talk with a brother, others spend a day or two experiencing this very different environment. Individuals and groups come on retreat and pilgrimage, share in the teaching and courses we offer and join us in worship and meals.
