Founded in 1958 by Percy and Gaynor Smith and inspired by the 17th Century Little Gidding Community, Pilsdon is an ecumenical Christian community rooted in the Anglican tradition. We offer a life of prayer, work and a welcome to a rich variety of people.
The community is led by the Warden and a group of up to six or seven other Community Members, who lead the prayers, organise work and maintain the boundaries of community life. They are made up of a mixture of single, civil partnered and married people (some with children) who live in simple accommodation and come from all walks of life.
We have room for up to 21 long term guests of the community, many of whom come looking for a safe, peaceful and disciplined environment in which to find hope and restoration amidst their struggles (recovery from alcohol/drug addiction, poor mental health, homelessness and other life crises). We have further accommodation for those coming for short respite visits, for holidays or retreats.
