About us:
In August 2016, our small community moved from east London to Peckham in south-east London. We currently consist of two families and ten singles who attend universities and work in London.

Setting:
We are conveniently located between three train stations that serve central London. The garden behind our three adjoining houses is perfect for barbeques with neighbours and relaxing after a day of work or study. The small roof terrace makes a good place for singing together in the evening and we enjoy the local parks for walks, games, and making new friends.

Connecting with Neighbours:
Our neighbours have welcomed us and invited us to their homes and churches. We are quickly finding opportunities to join in with other churches and organisations including London City Mission and the Sisters of Charity. We look forward to hosting many of our own events in our garden and spacious dining room.

Point of Interest:
Our workshop was built as a Victorian jam factory and its chimney is still a local landmark. Peckham is known for its multinational population and its many artists.

Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.

The Bruderhof has an open-door policy. No matter who you are, we are delighted to meet and spend time with you. Bruderhof communities host both drop-in and overnight guests every week. Some visits are purely social; others are deep explorations of faith and possible membership. Some visits involve barbecues and children’s activities; others revolve around spiritual conversations and guidance. Whatever your visit will be, we look forward to getting to know you! (Due to space and staff limitations, our smaller urban locations are unable to accommodate many visitors, particularly for overnight stays, but still feel free to get in touch if you wish to visit and we can talk.)
