The Abbey of the Way is located in the Tatnuck section of Worcester, about 1.5 miles west of the city center. Berwick Street is noted for its collection of stately homes, situated on an unusually quiet “L-shaped” street. #48 was constructed in the late 19th century, in a Queen Anne style, with a significant addition created in the 1920s. The home features high ceilings, expansive windows, generous rooms, and a large back yard. The Cowan family has lived in the house since 1955, and the address was a frequent gathering place for city leaders and community improvement planning. Since becoming The Abbey, such gatherings have continued, for the express purpose of deepening the lives of Christian leaders and enhancing the influence of God’s Kingdom in the region. Day visitors and overnight guests report a deep sense of God’s Presence, Peace, and Rest here.
