Abbot Martin wishes "to extend the Benedictine charism of hospitality". Following this lead the monastic community at Ealing Abbey is developing new expressions of community within the monastic enclosure.
Sacred activities (meditation, acts of worship, ritual)
Performative and creative arts (singing, instrumental, pottery, ikons)
Mutual care (the young, the old, continuing development)
Community building (participating in meetings and conversations)
Community leadership (spiritual and organisational)
Community expressions (psycho-spiritual counselling, teaching, pastoral care)
Caring for our tradition (research, publishing, library, archives).
These venerable traditions of Benedictine monasticism can be renewed and shared with the wider community.
