Some of my personal experiences at

The Othona Community, Bradwell on Sea, Essex

I'm also member and volunteer of The Othona Community in England. The OTHONA Community in Bradwell was started by the late Anglican Canon Norman Motley in 1946 to overcome the hatred which had its climax in the second world war. It is open to people from "all walks of life", no matter, if they follow a specific religion or not. In total The Othona Community has a membership of about 400 people world wide. One of my pleasures was introducing young German people mainly to the OTHONA Community at Bradwell to widen their horizons and to help the world wide ecumenical, peace and ecological movements. Here is an arial view of the center in Bradwell-on-Sea:

Site with Chapel (87 k) and Overview (95 k)

These pictures were taken one morning in spring 1993 while the new main building (L-shaped) was under construction. The white building with the red roof on bottom left is St. Peter's Chapel built in 654 used for the OTHONA daily services. The 3 long (2 gray, 1 black) buildings above the main building are the oldest OTHONA buildings on site (built in the 1950's).
