The Othona Community in Bradwell-on-Sea was founded in 1946. It is a residential centre for people of different ages, nationalities and backgrounds to seek a common understanding in the cause of peace. Othona has welcomed VAP volunteers since the early 1970's. Othona is a multi-faith non-dogmatic Christian Community founded next to one of the oldest churches in the UK (654AD). It fully involves non-Christians. It is an experimental community where work, play, drama, art and study are combined. Volunteers will be fully integrated in the life of the community.
The medium term volunteers will be expected to help for facilitate the running events at the Othona Community and help in every aspect of the daily life. This will include helping with all the different groups, gardening, maintenance work, cooking, bread baking, interacting with our guests.
The medium term volunteers will also coordinate and lead the 3 different short term workcamps at Othona, where volunteers around the world will come to enjoy the work and life at Othona.
The medium term volunteers will be sleeping in the core block. They will have their own rooms but will need to share the shower and toilets with each other.
The medium term volunteers will eat with the other staff and local volunteers. The food is generally home-made and most of the diets can be cater for (vegetarian, gluten free, vegan).

The Othona Community is situated on the east coast of Essex, next to a nature reserve. It is 5 Km from the nearest village, with its traditional English pubs. Nearby is a site of Special Scientific Interest, classified as an “area of outstanding natural beauty”.
The medium term volunteers will have 2 days off per week and are of course very welcome to join any activities they are interested in. Leisure time usually includes swimming in the sea, bonfire night, going to the pub or even going to London for the weekend!
Volunteers will be asked to pay a fee of £80 GBP upon arrival. VAP charges this fee as without it we would be virtually unable to organise any projects in the UK.
