Whitewater Abbey exists

to support

your faith journey.

​We want to see you flourish wherever you come from and

wherever you are going.

Life is an unexpected mix of

challenging rapids and swirling eddies.

One thing is for sure, 

the ride will be wild and scenic!

Whitewater Abbey is named for the ride.

The Abbey was founded over lunch at a coffee shop.
