Community of the Sisters of the Church (Solomon Islands)
Arrived in the Solomon Islands in 1970. Established as a separate Province 2001
Founded by Emily Ayckbowm in 1870, the Community of the Sisters of the Church is an international body of women within the Anglican Communion, living under the gospel values of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience, desiring to be faithful to the traditions of Religious Life while exploring new ways of expressing them and of living community life and ministry today. By our worship, ministry and life in community, we desire to be channels of the reconciling love and acceptance of Christ, to acknowledge the dignity of every person, and to enable others to encounter the living God whom we seek.
The Community's patrons are St Michael and the angels pointing us to a life both of worship and active ministry, of mingled adoration and action.
Our name, Sisters of the Church, reminds us that our particular dedication is to the mystery of the Church as the Body of Christ in the world.
The houses have varying timetables of corporate worship. The Eucharist and Divine Office (usually fourfold) are the heart of our Community life.
