Wondering about joining Community?

Sheldon uniquely combines the faithful lifestyle of living as a community with the transformational work of running a retreat centre. Our specialist work of caring for people in ministry is set within richly varied retreat and education resources open to everyone. We work hard and give deeply of ourselves, sustained through our ethos of stewardship, servanthood and stability.

We are seeking mature and reflective new colleagues looking to take up the next challenge in their lives. Financial rewards are modest but we live well in a beautiful place and are engaged in work with real meaning and purpose. Our approach to our place and our guests is gentle, nurturing and transformative. Working in a small, tightly knit team challenges us to grow in patience, creativity and resourcefulness. 

Please read through the more detailed information we have prepared about life and work at Sheldon.

There are specific roles outlined, but these are indicative role descriptions. We are willing to explore with anyone who has a potential vocation to community and has the desire and capacity to contribute fully in practical ways to our core ministry. To a large extent, roles are shaped around the people - that has always been our way!
