The Community of the Tree of Life

We are delighted to be highlighting the work of the Commuity of the Tree of Life, a residential new monastic community in the heart of Leicester.

Recently established by the Diocese of Leicester, the Community offers a 10-month formation programme to young adults who are seeking to deepen their relationship with God and discern God’s will for their lives.

The programme includes a Rule of Life and has three core elements:

Anyone aged 18-35 from the UK and beyond can apply to join this ecumenical community which runs from September to June each year.

The cost of joining the Community is currently £8,500, however, most of those currently in community are supported by a bursary fund. Without this fund the inspirational work of the Tree of Life would not be possible.

Support this project

The Tree of Life is a great opportunity for young people to live in community, deepen their faith and discern their own calling. It can be a life-changing experience.

You can support the Tree of Life Community and receive regular updates on its work.
