Latimer Minster is a mission network & church founded by Frog and Amy Orr-Ewing, based on a wild & beautiful farm in Beaconsfield, England. We hoped to become a church which was hospitable, authentic and we deeply wanted to eventually become a greater resource to the wider church in our nation and beyond.
Every Sunday new people come up our winding track for a visit and many find a spiritual home and a community where they feel accepted. We would like to warmly welcome you, whether you would normally associate yourself with church or not.
We love the seasons and thoroughly enjoy all that nature throws at us, but every week there are Sunday services at 10:30am, mid-week activities on the farm and smaller groups of friends and families that gather throughout the area.
Accountability and Oversight at Latimer Minster
Latimer Minster is part of the Church of England, with Anglican clergy authorised by the Bishops of Oxford and Buckinghamshire. Under God, we have committed ourselves to each other for the purpose of taking the good news of Jesus to the nations.
For a number of years, Latimer Minster operated under a Bishop’s Mission Order. The Bishop’s Mission Order for Latimer Minster ended on 30 December 2019. The Diocese and the Latimer Minster community are exploring fruitful ways forward.
The Minster Leadership Team (MLT) was commissioned in January 2020, with the mandate to ‘set and track the spiritual and strategic direction of the church’. The MLT consists of four staff, and six non-staff church family members, all of whom are deeply committed to doing whatever they can to help our church to thrive as a place of encounter with God, discipleship, and mission.
