This gathering and convention seeks to create an opportuinity for conversation, dialogue and learning to deepen and help articulate what New Monasticism is in a UK context. In so doing it seeks to draw together practitioners in England Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland who are in some form of relationshiop with the Anglican Churches to explore together what is a common understanding of this form of Christian vocation. Further, we seek to invite those who are sensing a calling in this area, to set up new communities.
Friday will begin with Evening Prayer St George the Martyr Church and then give time for introductions and a social with drinks and an evening meal. Saturday begins with Morning Prayer and a Short Address with Phil Potter, Missioner to the Archbishop of Canterbury and Leader of Fresh Expressions UK. The day will then give room for a number of important dialogues reflecting important areas that need to be addressed, as well as freer conversations based on other questions participants bring with them. Sunday the venue shifts to the Church of St Margaret the Queen in Streatham, and begins with conclusive discussions before Eucharist where some who have a great distance to travel may leave. For those who stay on we will have lunch together with activites in the acternoon finishing with Compline led by members of the Community of St Margaret the Queen.
