Cyberspace is Not Enough

We thought 21 November would mark the deadline for our buying the house in Didcot which we believe would make an ideal monastery. Happily for us, that has proved not to be the case, so we are redoubling our efforts to raise the necessary sum.

You will understand that during the past few months fundraising has occupied much of our time. We have some very exciting plans for the development of our web sites and smartphone apps, but just now they are ‘on hold’.

We are very grateful for all the help and support we have received. Please don’t stop now! Check out our web site at www.benedictinenuns.org.uk or go straight to our donations page:

Fundraising Update 2

It is a nail-biting time here at the monastery. After saving every penny we could for the last seven years, we are slowly inching our way towards the deposit we need for a house of our own. Or rather, not ‘our’ house at all, but a house of God where all are welcome. We have made great strides in the past few days, but we still need to raise £150,000 (whether by way of our Charitable Bond, donations or the underwriting of mortgage payments). For an overview of the situation and details of the way we hope to finance this project, please go here.

In the meantime, please keep us and those who wish to join our community in your prayers. It is tantalising to realise that the hard economic times we are all experiencing offer a unique opportunity to establish the monastery in a part of south Oxfordshire which is developing rapidly and where the Christian presence needs strengthening. How better than by a monastery dedicated to prayer, with one door open to everyone on the internet and another to everyone passing by on the road?
