Welcome to our website, filled with news and information about the Northumbria Community. We're adding new stuff all the time, and if you're 'just looking' then you're welcome to come in and browse around. If you're looking for something in particular, then we hope you'll find it here! You can receive notifications each time pages are updated, by using the 'rss feed'. You can click the rss link at the bottom of any page, whenever it's present, to receive notifications of changes to that page. The rss icon is the orange square with the white dot and two squiggles in it.
You may want to make use of the icons above the Search box in the top header, which can adjust the font size up or down for you, depending on your screen resolution (and how good your eyes are!)
If you arrived at Acton Home Farm, the Mother House of the Northumbria Community, the first thing we'd probably do is put the kettle on, and have a blether... so what's the online equivalent of that? Just come on in and make yourself at home, and you'll find the answers to some of your questions about the Northumbria Community... eventually... probably..
If you're a visitor, you might be wondering 'just what IS the Northumbria Community?'. Well, it's not easy to summarise in a few sentences... but if you click the 'Who are we' link, we'll have a go!
We are seeking to explore a new form of monasticism, and you can read about that here.
One of the things which binds us together as a Community is our Daily Office. It's a pattern of daily prayer which helps us to bring a rhythm to our day, wherever we are and whatever we're doing. Explore it here.
The Community sells some of its resources, it's one of the ways we put 'bread on our table'. You can explore and buy these resources in our Community Resouces & Shop area.
Nether Springs, the Mother House of the Northumbria Community, is in Northumberland in the north east of England. We run retreats, and also offer private space for reflection. Have a look to see what's on at Nether Springs.
