Hilfield' Vision 

In our daily living we aspire to be:

Rooted – we seek to live simply and gratefully, caring for the land that we have been entrusted with.

Christian – following Christ in the way of St Francis we care for the poor and marginalised of our society and all of creation.

Family – an open and inclusive community that welcomes all people and creation.

This vision was adopted by the Community on 4th September 2018
