We wish to encourage everyday people of faith; those who wish to serve God in their ordinary lives.
Our hopes and aspirations in our work of education are to help people:

Working with others
The Community of the Resurrection shares its site with a number of institutions that have their own particular contribution to make towards building up the Body of Christ. These are: The College of the Resurrection; St. Hild College and the Regional Training Partnership; The Mirfield Hub of the Diocesan School of Ministry. So a huge amount of theological education and training takes place here that is significant for the life and growth of the wider Church.
It is a gift and a joy that the people who are drawn here to study and learn come from many different theological and church traditions. This provides opportunities for new insights and understandings and, at its best, a way of modelling respectful disagreement and the celebration of difference.
At the heart of this learning enterprise is the Community itself, rooted in its own distinct worship tradition and providing the stability that enables all to feel welcome.
The benefits of having such a rich and diverse learning resource in one place means that, occasionally, the Mirfield Centre platform will be able to host collaboratively organised days or residential events in specialist areas of public interest.
We welcome you to come to CR and to share in our life. Some come regularly to talk with a brother, others spend a day or two experiencing this very different environment. Individuals and groups come on retreat and pilgrimage, share in the teaching and courses we offer and join us in worship and meals.
