Welcome to our website ...

We are an Anglican community living a contemplative monastic life.

The Convent of the Incarnation - known as Fairacres - is home to around twenty sisters. Drawn by God's love, we have come together to make the total gift of ourselves for the sake of the world. Our work is prayer and what flows from prayer: hospitality, study, and hearts open to the world in its beauty and goodness as well as in its confusion and suffering.

This lifelong spiritual work is made possible for us by our Rule and our vows, by silence, by prayer together and alone, by attending to our daily tasks, study and play, by the practical and prayerful help of many friends, and by God's amazing grace at every turn.

We invite you to find out more about us, about our history and our way of life - and how to get to know us better.
