The Lunesdale Community is a new ecumenical Christian community, currently welcoming new members. We intend to be a diverse, international community of families, individuals and couples, sharing life together through prayer, meals, work and study.

We moved into a large house in October 2015 in the village of Halton, near Lancaster, in the Lune Valley. This is becoming our Ecumenical Centre for Contemplation and Study.

The components of our commitment to sharing life together include:

– Daily pattern of community prayer (morning and evening), in the style of Taizé, centred around silence and reflection
– Individual commitment to on-going study and learning, and sharing of its fruits
– Sharing of practical work within the community to enable our life together
– Being present with each other through shared meals and activities
– Playing an active role in the local area; finding ways in which we can contribute to be a positive and supportive presence as a community

We are currently open to new members, through a process of mutual discernment. If you would be interested in being a part of this project, do please contact us. It is possible at this stage to commit to spending a few weeks living in community, with or without a view to staying with us for a longer time.

Lunesdale Community is currently looking for new members

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.
