Benedict's experience, recorded in his Rule, was that monasteries
were never short of
guests. Happily that remains the experience of the monks at Ealing,
and very welcome guests are too. In London we have, perhaps, a
special mission to show that peace can be discovered even in the
hustle and bustle of a great city.
Many of our guests come to visit the Abbey Church with its adjacent
Other guests may ask to meet some of the monks, or to join the
monastic community for a meal.
Some guests just wish to make a little prayerful space in their
lives for the inside of a day, or to stay for a night or two.
But to really find out about the monks' way of
life there is only one way - and that is to come and see it. Some
of our guests are
interested in staying with us to experience the monks' life at
first hand, either just for a few days or for a little longer -
or for life ...
Whether you are in any of these groups, or in none,
you will be very welcome.
