Quaker intentional community in the UK - are you interested?

Community EntranceThe door is open
for a


New
Quaker
Community


The Quaker Community in Bamford in the Peak District was set up in 1988 with two main aims:

  • to deepen our corporate spiritual experience through daily worship together, and
  • to give more effective expression to our Quaker testimonies.

The community owns buildings with accommodation for about 20 people along with 10 acres of land in Hope Valley, Derbyshire.
The members have agreed that it is time to lay down the current group
and seek Quakers interested in forming a new community. If a viable new
group emerges, it will inherit the current housing co-op structure,
aims and assets. It could remain at the current location or move
elsewhere.


A steering group of local Quakers will oversee the transition.



If you are a Quaker interested in helping to build a new Quaker Community, please write outlining your interest before the end of July to:

Quaker Community, Water Lane, Bamford,
Hope Valley, S33 0DA
