welcome to the web pages of James Leachman. I hope that you will find my work and that of other members of my monastic community to be of interest to you. I will be happy to be in contact with those who wish to work with the monastic community at St Benedict’s Abbey, Ealing in London.
For more information on this please go to: Facebook

You will discover on these pages a short history of the monastic community at St Benedict’s Abbey, Ealing and a description of how the monastic community developed some of its apostolates. This led to the founding in Overton House, on the Abbey property, of the Benedictine Study and Arts Centre (1992 -2015), now renamed as Benedictine Institute which hosts the Liturgy Institute (2010 -) in both of which I serve at present. We are also working on setting up a new project beginning 2018.

The Benedictine Institute’s history is recorded here.

The element of study and teaching is an important dimension of monastic life for me. I am grateful to serve in the Benedictine Institute, the Liturgy Institute, both in the Abbey grounds

To be authentically Benedictine all our apostolates overflow from our community life and worship.
