South West England

Project Q

Forming Community

Project Q is an emerging cohousing project; nothing is fixed at this stage other than: geographical area will be Southwest England (probably Cornwall); type of property will be farmstead/small country estate with land; an intention to align with the Quaker principles of truth, peace, equality and simplicity. Other aspects of the community are up for discussion and debate. A key aim is to help and support people through the climate and biodiversity crisis.

Bridport Cohousing

Forming Community

We are a group of local people working to create an affordable cohousing neighbourhood in Bridport. We have negotiated the option to purchase land immediately to the west of Bridport Community hospital, in two phases.
We have at last begun the process of building the affordable neighbourhood of sustainable eco-homes that have been in the planning stages for so long. The first phase of off-plan houses and flats are now for leasehold sale off plan at 80% of open market value - for details visit our website at www.bchomes.org.uk

Lee Abbey Knowle Small Missional Community

At the invitation of Knowle West Churches Together, the Lee Abbey community has been present on this South Bristol housing estate continually since 1992. Community members commit to the rule of life and to serve where God leads them in the local area. Our ministry has included pastoral visits, meeting physical and educational needs and supporting local churches in their worship, discipleship and mission. Because we are not a project, we focus more on building relationships over time with people who live or work in the area.
