Nazarean Essene Order of Mount Carmel, U.K.
The ancient town of Glastonbury is placed upon a small island nestled between the three hills of Tor Hill, Chalice Hill & Wearyall Hill, on the ‘Isle of Glass in the Summerland’ of Somerset, England. Throughout legend, it has been known as the Vale of Avalon & is the site of the first physical Nazarene Essene Church built personally by the fair Hands of our LORD YESHUA HaMASSIACH/ LORD JESUS the MESSIAH and later Community prior to HIS Ministry 2,000 years ago. It also contains the burial place of hundreds of famous Saints i.e. St. Patrick the Apostle to Ireland, the first Bishop of Glastonbury, & the burial place of King Arthure & His Queen Guinevere of Wessex & the Angles. A Sacred place of Pilgrimage to both Essene, Christians, Pagans alike.
So Why do People from all over the World Come to make Pilgrimages to Glastonbury?

What is the Living Waters Truth Centre Bed & Breakfast & Retreat Centre?
Living Waters is a Nazarean Essene Order & Inter-Faith Healing Centre that offers a homely, warm & welcoming simple personal 3 Star Retreat House to Spiritual Pilgrims. It is centred in the heart of the ancient legendary town of Glastonbury on the Isle of Avalon, less than half a mile from the historic town centre, famous for its Tor & Abbey Ruins.
