Welcome!

Mission

St. Bart's seeks to create a flourishing community that fosters reverence, resilience and responsibility through living out the Benedictine values of courtesy, hospitality, and generosity by a reflective, practical faith.

We identify with the following mission;

We are a welcoming and diverse fellowship,

gathering for joyful and contemplative worship,

rooted in tradition.

We are open and progressive, advocating for justice,

engaging scripture to discern the truth of God's revealing power and love.

(St. Barts Community, 2007)

    To build disciples of Christ through:

    Prayer, meditation, reflection - and daydreaming;

    fostering and implementing generosity;

    training wise leaders who can work with all conditions of people;

    connecting people of different backgrounds;

    wonder, love and praise;

    witness for the common good;

    to create a flourishing community and foster the well being of individuals.

    In a fragmented society, cultivates wholeness;

    In a atomized society, fosters relationships;

    In an inattentive society, harnesses conscientiousness;

    Instead of convenience, develops commitment.

    And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’ (Matthew 25:40)

    The Glory of God is a human being fully alive!
