The Alabaré Christian Community is a lay community established in 1984 as a Charitable Trust. The purpose of the Community is to encourage Christians of differing denominations to work and pray together in order to give witness to their faith in Jesus Christ and make a greater impact on society.

Alabaré is Spanish for ‘I will praise’.

In 2004 the Community established an Association of Lay Faithful in Canon Law within the Roman Catholic Church under the authority of the Bishop of Clifton. This fellowship serves the local Catholic Church in many ways, especially in supporting catechetical programmes. The Community and Fellowship welcome newcomers. For further information, please contact Deacon John Proctor on 07802 631968 or email

In 1991 the Community established Alabaré Christian Care and Support, a charitable company to care for the vulnerable and marginalised. We work with the homeless, young people leaving care, adults with learning difficulties, people with enduring mental health issues and homeless veterans. We operate across the South, South West England and throughout Wales offering both residential and day care services. We run a garden centre, charity shops and training centres and are always looking for new volunteers to help. Most of these activities operate within the Salisbury area.
