Shechem community

What is Shechem?

"A people of refuge, who seek to express the love of God by providing refuge to people where they live and work."

Shechem is a geographically dispersed Christian community that actively shares the experience of refuge, refreshment, renewal and acceptance. We come together at times, for example, for national meetings or to camp together on an annual weekend, to share this with friends and each other. We each try to express our community's beliefs and purpose through living out the Shechem Rules of Life.
