As one of the first “New Monastic Communities”, we live together under the Lee Abbey Rule of Life.

A Rule of Life is a guideline to help us, not a set of rules to restrict us, underpinned by our Vision and Values.

The Lee Abbey Rule of Life says:

In response to Jesus Christ’s love, we seek to…

  • worship him and seek his will
    through regular prayer, Biblical reflection and joining with others for fellowship and communion
  • deepen our personal commitment
    recognising that our minds, time, talents, possessions and relationships, as gifts from God, are to be increasingly surrendered to him
  • share his saving love
    through our attitudes, lives, relationships and practical hospitality
  • live in openness and honesty
    being open to be known for who we are, accepting one another in love and saying nothing of others that could not be said to them personally if love and wisdom required it
  • help build community
    where we live, work and worship
  • respect and serve all others
    welcoming every guest and the stranger, being a voice for the voiceless and working to alleviate poverty and injustice
  • cherish and protect God’s creation
    which God the Father loves and entrusts to our care

… trusting in the help of the Holy Spirit

This Rule of Life forms the basis for the promises that we make as Community.
