In our work we believe it is important to adhere to the following values:
CONTEMPLATION IN ACTION
'To provide patterns of life, thought and prayer which reflect wholeness and holiness in relation to ourselves, each other and the whole creation of which we are a part.'
'In speaking of land we understand this in relation to the story of the human family, which is woven into the story of our Planet Earth, which is woven into the story of the whole universe.' Donald Nicholl
We seek to honour our calling to life in Christ,
risen from the dead to the life of heaven,
and at the same time we are called to celebrate that we are 'of the earth',
earthy, dependent on the earth for all aspects of our living,
a thanksgiving for earth 'shot through' with heaven.
Yet the earth which we inhabit is also the land to which we give meaning,
the land which is fought over, longed for,
the place of immigration, emigration, migration, exile.
It is the place in which our economy is developed.
The Trust is committed to a lifestyle that is in harmony with our status as human creatures, living in a healthy balance between prayer, work and study on the one hand, and relaxation, recreation and rest on the other.
We are committed to work and live out a theology of both earth and land.
