Would you like to get involved?
Apart from the resident community, Minsteracres has a wider community of friends who offer their service on a voluntary basis. We are very grateful for the many friends we have and the invaluable contribution they make to Minsteracres. Without our friends we wouldn’t be able to run this beautiful place of prayer and presence. We are looking for more friends, who would like to share their time and presence with the people that come here.
We are looking for people who …
feel attracted to a life of prayer and service
would like to offer hospitality and welcome
would like to offer service in the dining room
would like to help to maintain and sustain the beautiful grounds of Minsteracres
would like to help to make Minsteracres more sustainable.
If you feel attracted to this place and our way of life and you have some spare time to volunteer, please contact us or ring 01434 673248.
Here is what others have said about their role as volunteers:
