The Anglican Benedictine Nuns of Malling Abbey


Nun praying in the cloister

We are a community of women who have been drawn to respond to God's love by living a life of prayer, work, study and hospitality based on the Rule of St. Benedict.

In our corporate worship we pray in fellowship with the whole church; in times of solitude and silence each sister responds in her own way to the call to 'Pray constantly'.

Through simplicity of lifestyle we express our reverence for God's creation, and our concern and responsibility for the future.

We welcome enquiries from women who feel drawn to the Benedictine way of life. For some, this interest may lead to a life commitment as a nun; for others, to a time of living as an alongsider within our community. Both vocations are an expression of our Christian commitment to seek and serve God.
