Religious Communities

Prayer can be difficult on your own. Actually, being a Christian is pretty hard on your own. That’s why Christians have always gathered together – to encourage each other, learn together, and share their lives together.
Anselm 2

Some Christians want to take this further and really explore what it means to be children of God together. What it means to embody new relationships, and the new life and possibilities that Jesus promises.

Whenever the church has grown, we can see praying communities behind it. Today, Archbishop Justin wants to encourage these communities – the traditional ones, and the new, experimental ones. It’s his prayer that they grow and explore together, and learn from each other. Together they are the great treasure of the Church.

One of the ways the Archbishop is supporting communities is by giving young people a chance to experience a year living in community here at Lambeth Palace, with the Community of St Anselm. Find out more on the community on their website.
