The Community of the Resurrection was founded in Oxford in 1892, coming to Mirfield, West Yorkshire in 1898. Our ministry has extended to South Africa and Zimbabwe as well as other parts of the world and throughout the UK.
We live together as brothers in Christ, rooted in the Anglican tradition and formed in a Benedictine round of prayer, ministry and hospitality. Worship is at the heart of our life, centred on the Eucharist and daily offices. The tradition of Gregorian chant is part of our drawing on the wells of the Church’s continuity.
From its beginnings the Community has been involved in building up the Body of Christ through pastoral and educational works. Our ministry of spiritual guidance, teaching and support is complemented by all that is offered on our site.
We welcome others to come, see, learn and share. Thousands join us each year for retreats, pilgrimages, school and college projects, or simply to experience something of our life.

The Co-operative Bank are proud to be the main sponsorship partner of the Wonderful Organisation supporting charities to make a difference by ensuring 100% of donations go directly to doing good. Learn more about the Bank’s values and ethics.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
