We are Followers of Jesus.

Loretto UK is a charismatic  community serving the Catholic Church. Loretto UK  has been active in London since 2019 with roughly 45 active members and the Loretto HOME,  a house of community, formation, encounter, hospitality, prayer and service. The only way to really get to know us is meet us! We’d love to welcome you, either at our weekly worship night or at the HOME in Twickenham.

Our mission is to bring light and hope to the local community and Church by creating welcoming spaces where people can encounter God, deepen their relationship with Him, and experience a sense of belonging. We do this through prayer, service, and community in order to make a real and lasting impact in God’s Church and society.

During this conference we invite you on a journey to be set on fire by the Holy Spirit and be equipped and inspired by other leaders through a series of talks, workshops and panel discussions.

HOME Missionbase

The Loretto HOME in London is a house in Twickenham, close to St. Mary’s University. Since its foundation in October 2020, the Loretto HOME has become a place of community, formation, encounter, and service. There is a community of 8 young adults living at the HOME, who combine their professional or student life with an experience of intentional discipleship lived in an outward-focused community. In addition to their ordinary study life or professional work, each member of the Loretto HOME community commits to prayer, discipleship, and mission as main pillars of their life at the HOME Mission Base.
