Background & History

The Shechem Christian Community was founded in 1998 by a group of people who had over many years experienced the concept of a 'City of refuge' through the Post Green Christian community whose home (Post Green House, near Poole in Dorset) had become a City of refuge to many people between 1970 and 1997. 

Visiting speakers at our events have included Iona community, Kairos, Christian Television Association, the Sure Foundation and others. Shechem is still young as a community of people and we are currently exploring our way forward and expanding through sharing and involving new members.
