The Wellspring Community

The Wellspring is a Catholic community seeking to live the Gospel of Christ, with the Rule of St Benedict as our guide. Living a common life of prayer and service, we seek to witness to the Kingdom of God in the city of Brighton, welcoming others into encounter with Christ, and reaching out to share the presence of Christ in the wider community.

At the heart of our life is the call to continual conversion – to be conformed to Christ, following his path of obedience and humility. We seek to “prefer nothing whatever to Christ” (Rule of St Benedict Ch72) by rooting our daily lives in prayer, Scripture, and the Sacraments. The ancient wisdom of the Benedictine tradition offers a practical path for bold Christian living.
