Worth Abbey

Worth Abbey is an English Benedictine monastery, a sanctuary where the Gospel of Christ is expressed through a community life of prayer and service.

At its heart is a community of Catholic monks who follow the life-giving guidance of the Rule of St. Benedict. The fusion of daily life with the wisdom of the Rule gives monasteries like Worth a powerful energy.

The monastic life is centred around Bible reading (“Lectio Divina”), Personal prayer, Sacred liturgy, Hospitality, Spirituality and Discipleship.

Monks seek to live out the Gospel not as isolated individuals (modern individualism is foreign to Benedict’s way of thinking), but as members of a community. Our common love for Christ unites us on the journey to our eternal home.
