Joining Up

Becoming a Companion of St Aidan

Companionship is open to all. However, Companions will have given serious thought and prayer to help to determine whether this is a community to which they wish to belong. There is no formal selection process, but before signing up as a Companion, those who are interested will be asked to:

* Participate in a brief introductory conversation either individually or in a locally based group

* Consider and subscribe to the Rule of Life and the values that it embodies

* Accept the Safeguarding guidelines that relate to Companions

* Accept the need for regular prayer as part of the Community  -walking with St Aidan

* Make a commitment to participate as part of one or more of the mission networks and offer encouragement and support to other Companions, sharing ideas and resources

* Be willing to attend at least one of the annual Community Gathering days with other Companions

When you have decided to sign up as a Companion you will be asked to:

* Publish your personal profile on the secure ‘Companions Only’ section of the website so other Companions can meet you and get to know of your interests

* Join or initiate and participate in the mission networks of common interest and share ideas and experiences
