New Monastic Community in Melbourne

Rachael and Jonathan Lopez are establishing a new monastic community this year in partnership with Spotswood Anglican Church, Melbourne.

Jonathan and Rachael recently returned from London where they were living as community members at the Community of St Anselm from 2015-2016; a community established by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. They experienced a rhythm of life centred around prayer, study, worship and work in local charities and shared stories from their experience at this year’s ACARLA conference.

Kanan, a former member of the Kihilla Community, lived with the Spotswood Community in February and helped build their new website:

Rachael also writes regularly for her personal blog:

Please join us in praying with them for the year ahead. If you know someone who might want to join their community, see their online application information:
