CofEDiosesLogoNew Residential Christian Community at St Thomas’s, Ipswich?

ResidentialChristianCommunityWould you like to explore living in a small community with others who are searching for God and a way of life integrating faith and action? 

Would you like to support the process for the creation of a residential Christian community in Ipswich? The Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich and St Thomas’s PCC are starting the discernment process by inviting those who are interested to come together to pray on a regular basis and discern God’s will for a residential Christian community in Ipswich.

St Thomas’s, Ipswich is a Church of England parish whose Priest in Charge, the Revd Jutta Brueck, brings experience of living in and supporting Christian residential communities. She has a calling to develop an intentional community that would be open to Christians and seekers of all denominations, drawing on the experience of ancient and present religious communities. The aim is to create a community of prayerful presence whose members are committed to a way of life integrating faith and action.


The Revd Canon Dave Gardner writes, "I welcome this imaginative initiative that reflects a growing interest in applying our monastic tradition to contemporary culture. This captures a renewed sense of what it means to be involved in Growing in God communal prayer, study and engagement in God's mission." 

If you would like to know more, you are invited to prayer meetings on the following dates:

1 March, 16 March, 14 April, 26 April, 11 May and 26 May between 7.30pm - 9.00pm
