Community life

We are a Community because we believe that we all – people with learning disabilities, assistants and Community friends – have need of one another.

We all have something to give and to receive from one another. Often this involves doing small, simple, day-to-day things: going for walks or having a cup of tea or just spending time together.

People with learning disabilities help take decisions though house meetings and a monthly members meeting.

We organise monthly Community Gatherings, days of reflection, celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, parties, games, prayers, retreats, pilgrimages.  We value our relationships with our neighbours, parishes, families and friends. Weekend activities include shopping, walking and other outings. Holiday groups travel throughout the UK and Europe, often staying in other L’Arche Communities.
