Members of the Community gather each morning for half an hour of silent prayer, and half an hour of liturgical prayer (usually the Eucharist) and gather again in the evening for silence and for Evening Prayer. Each member of the community has a prayer guide, drawn from local Religious orders.
The Community was launched in September 2015 at a service at St George-in-the-East with the Bishop of Stepney. CTC also launched ‘Deep Calls to Deep: Monasticism for the City,’ which looks at what the wider Church can learn from religious orders in the inner city.
The Community is one of many ways in which Christians today are trying to learn from, and contribute to, the rich tradition of monastic life in the Church. We will be sharing news of the Community’s development through this page, social media and mailings, so do keep in touch with us – and pray for all those who are involved in this venture of faith!
