Benedictus is a contemplative church seeking an authentic, open-hearted and thoughtful encounter with God. Silent meditation, reflection on Scripture, and celebration are features of our shared life and worship. In the spacious hospitality of prayer and community, we learn to attend more deeply to ourselves and each other, and to the movement and calling of the Spirit in our time.

 

Benedictus means blessed. To be blessed and a blessing is to join in God’s reconciling love for the world. We welcome all people who are seeking to deepen their spiritual journey.

‘Benedictus strikes me as a fresh, refreshing and contemporary manifestation of Christian faith and community for our time. Benedictus brings the depth dimension of contemplative spirituality into the experience of both worship and fellowship ... It is not only the church that benefits from this. The social institutions with which the church works in the world are also challenged to live at a level beyond outward appearance and to make compassion and wisdom integral to their vision and way of life’.
