In the 1960s an extraordinary period of renewal came to the Church of the Redeemer in Houston, Texas. Worship was transformed and several hundred people shared homes and possessions in a community of love. Eventually the renewal came to Britain in the shape of the Community of Celebration, whose ministry teams known as the Fisherfolk became a worldwide phenomenon. Decades on, the Community of Celebration is now based in the USA, a small religious community of the Episcopal Church. How did it make the transition from a large family oriented community to a type of vowed religious order? Philip Bradshaw, an Anglican priest and life vowed community member based in England, reflects on his life with the Community since its early beginnings.
