Through a programme of teaching, silence, worship and reflection based on a Benedictine monastic pattern

The 5-Day Community for Spiritual Formation aims to

  • root spirituality in Christian faith and tradition
  • provide opportunity for participation in community life
  • form people for life in a changing world

The 5-day Community for Spiritual Formation operates as the British expression of the “5-day Academy for Spiritual Formation”. This, in turn, is one of the programmes offered by “Upper Room ministries” (www.upperroom.org) which is an independent, ecumenical organisation, whose roots lie in the United Methodist Church, USA.
