The Wellspring Community is an ecumenical community of lay and ordained men and women who are seeking new ways of living the gospel in Australia.

We are a dispersed ecumenical community in Australia. We aim to live prophetically, see God’s presence in each moment and person, work for reconciliation and practise peace.

Inspired by the Iona Community known world-wide for its radical and prophetic Christianity, liturgical renewal and engagement with local and global issues, the Wellspring Community was founded in 1992.



John Bell… Scottish preacher, hymn writer, composer, lecturer and broadcaster, and member of the Iona Community is visiting Australia in May.
