Community of the Sisters of the Love of God

Community of the Sisters of the Love of God, Fairacres

St. Mary's Church has a particular link with the contemplative community, whose chief work is prayer built on the offering of the Eucharist and the regular sharing of the Divine Office. Life and prayer in solitude is recognised as an important part of the sister's vocation, in accordance with the Carmelite Spirit of the community.

The Mother house is in Oxford, though there are other houses in Staplehurst, Hemel Hempstead and New Zealand. There is limited accommodation for private retreats at all houses in the community and the SLG Press publishes books and pamphlets on Spirituality. The list of titles is available from :

The Delhi Brotherhood Society

St. Mary's Church has a Special link with the Delhi Brotherhood Society which is an Anglican religious community working in Delhi. The origin of the Society spans back over 100 years when a small number of English priests set out from Cambridge University in England under the inspiration of Bishop Westcott in 1877. They formed themselves into a small brotherhood and lived under a simple rule of life.

Work of the Delhi BrotherhoodThe community embraces itself in working for the poor in Delhi through its members.

Today the Society does an enormous task of social development in the slums of Delhi, especially in the north-east area. As a result of which currently, about 30,000 people in the Delhi area and 37,000 across Yamuna River benefit from the work.

Right from the beginning the Society's main concern was for the poor, underprivileged and the downtrodden section of the society, who had always been exploited by the dominant upper strata. DBS aims at effective development by the people themselves, and not by the agencies, to go into the community with absolute respect for people, their culture and their faith.
