Places needing Members

Communities vary widely in their capacity to host guests during periods when they are not looking for new members. So don't be surprised if a request to visit is turned down. However, the communities listed below have said that they are currently looking for new members so, generally while that need remains, they will also be the keenest on visitors who have a genuine interest.

We’d like to hear from you if you would like to join us as Core Member-Caterer You’ll need some competence both in cooking and in running a kitchen including menu planning, ordering, food hygiene and so on. You will enjoy cooking good simple home cooked food, using local produce where possible and encouraging others to develop their skills and confidence in the kitchen too. We all get involved in some cooking, cleaning, visitor liaison, event hosting, daily quiet times in chapel and a willingness to help out if something arises, regardless of our main job focus. You will live in a beautiful part of the country with sea views, receive full board and a room in shared team accommodation on site, along with a modest salary. Please email Caroline for full details in the first instance, and look on our website "Living & Working Here - Vacancies" for a longer description.

We are an intentional Christian community seeking like-minded families, couples or individuals to share life shorter or preferably longer term. Our focus is ecumenical in the contemplative tradition (Taizé) and living in a sustainable way, being available to each other and the needs of the community around us. At the moment we are only a family of four, and we are looking for people who can show responsibility and initiative. We have a large ex-carehome with six or more bedrooms available with common spaces (dining room, office, meeting room, library, livingroom, chapel, craft room) and a small garden in the lovely Lune valley in a village next to Lancaster. We are vegetarian, cycle everywhere, have two friendly small dogs and get on easily with everyone. The community doesn’t generate income, and we need to share costs. We do have professional IT work to offer to people with the appropriate programming skills – please ask! Proper salary, working from a shared office in the community. We’d love to hear from you and welcome inquirers to visit.

Unique opportunity for a small forming community Are you wanting to set up a cohousing project but don’t have enough people/money/energy to make it happen? Well how about joining us?? The Threshold Centre is a well-established community, initiated around 12 years ago with the purchase of the farmhouse (now our community space) and the conversion of the adjoining buildings into 14 residential properties. The total capacity of the community is about 20, but this year we have a few people moving on for various reasons and we find ourselves with some vacancies: there are currently two 2-bed and one 1-bed cottages for sale, plus two ‘one-up one-down’ properties coming up in the next few months for rent from the housing association we are allied with. So if you are a forming group of perhaps 6 people, this could be your answer! We are only a mile away from a mainline railway station and shops, and yet we are situated in a beautiful spot in rural Dorset. To find out more about us, please see our website (www.thresholdcentre.org.uk) and contact us if you would like to come and discuss the possibilities.
