“Lord grant that I may seek to comfort than to be comforted; to understand than to be understood; to love than to be loved; for it is by forgetting self that one finds; it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. Amen” (St Francis of Assisi) For us living in an Intentional Christian community is not only a great opportunity but in many ways life changing. Our ideal is that over a period of time the ryhthm of giving and receiving evident in community life inspires in people a more selfless existence, one where life is not so much ‘me’ focussed, more outward looking. We also hope to foster an accountibility with each other that facilitates continuing positive change. We want people to leave community life with more love than they arrived with and more able to give that love away. There are 15 of us living here at Fruit Corner and whilst the turnover of community members is not frequent we do have members that move on from time to time. We are also part of an informal network in central Bristol of 12 other Christian community houses. If you are interested in this pilmgrimage please get in touch.  “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  “And may the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
