At a crossroads and wondering what to do next? Is God calling you to something new — a year out, perhaps, or longer?

Do you want to be part of a community of Christians from 20 nations around the world, who encourage each other to put Christ at the centre and to live out the gospel in down-to-earth ways? Being on Community is about living, working, serving and worshipping closely together, being open to being known for who we are. It’s challenging but great fun too, and if you let it, it can be life-changing.

“Thanks to all the friendships I gained there, I learnt more about God’s character, His grace, and how to recognise His will for my life.” – Iva

As you consider whether Community is for you, read our vision and mission, values and the promises all Community members make, and watch videos of Community members sharing a bit about their experience.

How about you?

We are looking for people with a personal faith in Christ and a desire to deepen that faith by surrendering more of their lives to Him. You need to be prepared to give of yourself to our guests and fellow Community members. Fitness, health and energy are pretty essential too!

Lee Abbey is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and adults and expect all who join Community to share this commitment.
