We live in a secular world. Religion, in any form, is foreign to most people. And yet many people sense that there is more to the world than meets the eye, not only on an emotional or psychological level, but especially on a spiritual one. For those looking for a more meaningful and fulfilling life, a modern form of Christian religious life can be a great help in finding a new relationship to the divine world.

The Christian Community is a movement whose aim is to renew religious life. It does not do so by attempting to revive any previous practices. On the contrary, it works out of a heightened awareness of the necessity for a world view with an intrinsic spiritual dimension as basis for any real religious activity. It is this that makes the services, as they are celebrated in the Community, new. The spiritual quality, evident in all the services and sacraments, reveals something of the fullness of the invisible, divine above us.


Louise Madsen is a priest of The Christian Community, currently based in Stourbridge, England.
