Shrewsbury ... shall be a name 'as stirring to the heart as the glories we have lost'

Blessed John Henry Newman, 1852

Catholic Associations

Christian Life Community in England and Wales


Christian Life Community (CLC) is not so much an organisation but a way of life, inspired by the spirituality of St Ignatius Loyola, for people who want to understand more deeply how God is at work in their everyday lives.

Members embrace this way of life as a means of enabling them to bring together their faith and their lives; becoming more aware of how God is working in them. Some come to CLC without any prior experience of Ignatian spirituality and others come after discovering Ignatian spirituality in various ways, such as weeks of guided prayer or retreats.

We meet regularly in small groups to share and listen to how God is working in our lives. We aim to spiritually through daily prayer; support each other in community, through the ups and downs of ordinary life; and discover how God is calling us to serve him.

Christian Life Community is made up of 60 national communities worldwide. We do not hve a rule book but a set of flexible General Principles which help to give shape to our lives.
