    Amish Communities in UK?

    Hi,This years has been very hard, personally, my mother died in September of this year, and I now feel it is time for me to join a church of some description. I have started to become intruged by The Amish people ever since my youngest daughter bought me a novel, I have quite a few Amish information books as well as a prayer book that I use all the time and a bible. I love this site as well because anything I wish to find out about – the answers are always here. I live in Basildon, Essex and am just wondering if there is anyone out there that could point me in the right direction?

      Hello Sue, did you already contact the Amish-Mennonites of Dunmore East? http://www.independent.ie/lifestyle/unique-irish-community-the-amish-of-dunmore-east-26794029.html

    Amish Communities in UK?

    Hi Gisa,
    I have been on the Dunmore East site, but I haven`t contacted anyone as yet, I have also been on the Mennonite site. Do you think it would be worth a try?

    Many Thanks
    Sue

    Amish Communities in UK?

    Hi Gisa,
    The only problem about getting there is, that it`s a long way from where I am, I was hoping for something a bit nearer, unless I can do it online maybe?

    Comment on lack of information (March 22nd, 2014 at 11:14)

    lack of information

    i am interested in renting from an old order amish family in lancaster pennsylvania, either a room or an unused dawdi house. i am willing to live by the rules and help out. i have always had an interest in the amish community. when we lived in maryland we went up to lancaster county on the weekends to the markets and just to drive the back roads stopping at local stands. since the loss of my husband i have sought the peace and direction i find when i read the books about amish life. the lack of electric or phone or a car is the least of it. these are just material things. more important is my spiritual. i have been unable to contact anyone to help me. all i want is the name of several bishops in the area to write to to ask for help. thank you and have a good day. karen easter–apt.304–60 doughty road lawrenceburg. indiana 47025. please write to me if you can help me.

      Joining the Amish in Indiana

      Hello Karen,
      If you are looking for a rental space from the Amish, why look in PA? You live just minutes from old order Amish communities in Switzerland Co. I have Amish friends that live in the old order community and they are the nicest, most friendly people I have ever met. Have you ever considered trying close to where you live now?

      Joining Amish after 50

      Hello, Karen,
      I saw your comment about wanting to live with an Amish family. I am not Amish, nor do I have a family in mind that could help you. I am inquiring as to whether to not you found a family to live with and to ask how it went (or how is it still going if that is the case)?
      I’d love to hear more. Would it be ok to write to you?
      Sincerely, Melissa

    about joining an amash group

    Look, I have grown up mostly Amish all my life, I know the work and the kind of life, and aside from me not wanting to kill any animal. I can do it. so where can I hook up with an Amish community. I grew up on a small farm, no phones,without electricity and electronics, wood stove, and we even had to haul water, so we probably had it harder then some Amish families.I am already christian and My mother and I would like to hook up with some Amish in Mt or Id, is there anybody out there who will help us?
