Regular Cleaning and Maintenance

The monastery buildings and grounds require quite a bit of looking after to make the place comfortable for residents and welcoming for visitors. The following jobs are done on a weekly basis:

  • Mopping and vacuuming floors and carpet.
  • Sweeping around the main area.
  • Cleaning toilets and bathroom facilities.
  • Window cleaning.
  • Dusting and cobweb removal.

If you’d like to help out, let us know!


We are a small community with three monks who according to tradition cannot drive cars. To avoid burdening the resident lay men we have a number of people who we can call upon to drive us to appointments, teaching engagements and shopping trips. If you’re in the Kelmscott area you can give us your contact details and we may give you a call from time to time.

Building Work

Ajahn Santutthi has a few projects on the go on both properties. He can always use help and in particular is looking for people with qualifications such as plumbers, electricians, carpenters, brickies and so forth. Those without qualifications who have handy skills or would like to learn some are also welcome to come and help out.
