Who makes Sheldon happen?

Many people are involved in making Sheldon happen and there are many ways to be part of the life and ministry. We'd love to hear from you if you want to join us. 

Members of the Sheldon Community live here with a long term vocational commitment to the Mary and Martha life and ministry. 

Alongsiders live and work at Sheldon for a period of 6 months to 2 years sharing in the Community's life and ministry. This might be a time of personal transition/exploration, a gap year (at any age) or a period of discernment before joining the Community longer term. 

Members of Sheldon's staff team contribute their skills in a wide variety of roles including cleaning, housekeeping, cooking, administration, gardening and estate management.

Volunteers give many different types of service including workparties, hospitality, theatre and reception. 

Trustees meet twice a year to keep an eye on the legal side of things and the overall direction of the charity.

Patrons champion the Mary and Martha cause by lending their names to the ministry.
