The charity’s objectives are the advancement of the Christian religion through worship and the provision of facilities for study, spiritual direction and learning and the encouragement of reflection on spiritual matters, in particular be the provision of spiritual education and counselling; and through the support of the wider Christian community, in particular the Community of the Resurrection of our Lord and the Church in South Africa.
We are a warm and inclusive Christian community who welcome those of all faiths or none. Our community consists of the Warden, Jacques, his wife Kathryn and their children Joel and Amber, as well as 10 longer term residents creating a vibrant yet peaceful atmosphere within the house.
January 2017 – New Year, New beginnings.
As I start in my role as Chair of the Board of Directors for St Peter’s Bourne, it is good to celebrate past success and to plan for a bright future.
The changes of the last few years have laid a firm foundation on which to build our shared life together. I am excited to see growth in community, spirituality and contact with our neighbours. I also believe that as we prayerfully support each other our capacity to meet some of the needs of the world increases. We may not know the specifics as yet, but the journey will be an adventure.
And so to everyone who may walk with us, I welcome you as we follow Jesus wherever he leads at this time and in this place.
Yours in Christ,
Rob, Bishop of Edmonton
