We live together as brothers in Christ, rooted in the Anglican tradition and formed in the monastic round of prayer, worship and ministry. We welcome others to come, see, learn and share. https://mirfield.org.uk/update-regarding-coronavirus-covid-19/
Walter Frere – Scholar, Monk, Bishop
Edited by Benjamin Gordon-Taylor & Nicolas Stebbing CR
Walter Frere (1863-1938) was one of the leading Anglo-Catholic figures of his day and one of the Church of England’s most notable liturgists. A monk and accomplished musician, he was the first to compile a book of collects and readings for saints days – the prototype of Exciting Holiness. His liturgical influence extended throughout the Anglican Communion. He was Bishop of Truro and then became one of the founders of the Community of the Resurrection, Mirfield today a thriving monastic community and theological college. He twice served as its Superior. This set of essays assesses his legacy, his wide ranging contribution to church life and his continuing influence. It constitutes the first critical study of his work and will be of interest to students of liturgy, church music and the Church of England in the 20th century, as well as to the many friends and associates of the Community and priests who trained at Mirfield.
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.
