As a Community we pray for all affected by the Coronavirus Covid-19. This is an unprecedented situation facing all of us.

Circle all of these dear ones, O God.  Keep Comfort, Protection and Hope near.

 Temporary Closure of our Mother House, ‘Nether Springs’

It is with some sadness that, in the light of recent guidelines issued by the Government regarding the Coronavirus Covid-19, we have to announce the temporary closure of our Mother House, Nether Springs, effective from Friday 20th March until further notice. 

However, we are currently working on an alternative, online retreat programme which we will publish information about soon on the website and on our Facebook Page

Our World-wide Community  

Please continue to join us in our daily prayers. We are currently co-ordinating some online offices.  Please contact the School for Monastic Living – school@northumbriacommunity.org if you would like to join in with these.  You can also catch up with the Lenten reflection series on our blog here.

Additionally, we will be releasing our Easter programme of St Ninian, Extending the Blessing with our Renewal of Vows liturgy very soon. Now is the time to say ‘Yes’ to our way for living with Availability and Intentional Vulnerability.

Thank you for your ongoing prayers for the Northumbria Community. As Overseers along with our Trustees we ask for your prayers as we face difficult financial decisions. We stand with you and your dear ones within all your personal and community implications of this time and pray for you.

Yours, in Companionship with each other and with Christ,

Sarah, Catherine & Sarah.
