The Community of Our Lady of Walsingham - A new contemplative, but not enclosed, religious community, helping promote a culture of vocation in the Church and in society by enabling people to respond fully to the call of love in their lives. They can be found at Abbotswick House of Prayer.

English Province of the Ursulines - We are an international and worldwide community of sisters. Angela Merici, our foundress, had a vision for unity, “There will be no other sign than that you are living in the Lord’s favour save that of loving one another and being united together”. (10th legacy) Our Roman Union consists of 30 provinces and around 2,500 sisters.

Community of Franciscans of the Renewal - The Friars were founded in 1987 by eight Capuchin priests. The purpose of the community is to strive to a return to the authentic Capuchin way of life and the renewal of the Catholic Church. In addition, the friars are known for their fidelity to the pope. The Community characterises itself as Catholic, Franciscan, Capuchin, contemplative, prophetic, apostolic, fraternal and pro-life. They have a Friary in the Brentwood Diocese in Canning Town which opened in 2001.
