Our rambling stonebuilt house sits in 7 acres of wild and wonderful grounds, on the unspoilt coast of West Dorset. We have wide sea views and a 10 minute walk down through woods and fields to Chesil Beach. A place to re-charge your batteries – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. A place just to be.

Up to 8 of us live on site and extend hospitality for as many as 35 visitors at a time. Newcomers are just as welcome as regulars. The atmosphere is very informal.

The key word is acceptance. As a visitor you can be part of the community, not just an onlooker. Sharing meals and jobs and jokes, gifts and ideas, we find that unnecessary barriers between people gradually come down. A sense of belonging grows, a sense of being appreciated and needed for who you are. Without this welcoming heart a community would curl up and die.

The great intimate mystery we call God surely goes beyond dogma. As an open Christian community we include and learn from people of all faiths and none. In community – and without pressure to conform in religious terms – you may experience the Fellowship of the Spirit in everyday life.

Our name originally belonged to a Roman fort at Bradwell-on-Sea in Essex. From its ruins, Celtic Christians built a church in A.D. 654. The Othona Community began nearby in 1946, using that ancient church as its chapel. In 1965 we were given a second centre here at Burton Bradstock. It had formerly been home to a community of women dedicated to silent prayer and self-sufficiency.

A renewed sense of community may be vital for the future of the planet. A heartfelt and down-to-earth spirituality is vital for each one of us. In its own way, Othona tries to be a seed-bed for both.
