Community of the Servants of the Will of God


Founded 1953

The Monastery of the
Holy Trinity
Crawley Down, Crawley
West Sussex
RH10 4LH
Tel: 01342 712074

This monastery is set in woodland with a small farm attached. The Community lives a contemplative life, uniting silence, work and prayer in a simple life style based on the Rule of St Benedict. The Community is especially concerned with uniting the traditions of East and West, and has developed the Liturgy, Divine Office and use of the Jesus Prayer accordingly. It now includes women living under the same monastic Rule. The Community intends to close the monastery in Hove, which was opened in 1985, and to relocate the charitable trust Centre, in order to better fulfil its objects, on the property at Crawley Down.
