A praying Christian Community at the heart of our city

Retreats

Booking Retreats

We are only able to offer day retreats so unfortunately no over-night accommodation is available .  (Previous visitors to the city have booked into local hotels and spent their days at the Prayer House).  It may be possible to arrange a led retreat or to arrange some input from one of our staff – please enquire about this.

Currently, retreats are normally available Monday to Friday, 10.00am to 3.45pm and prior booking is essential.  It may be possible to book earlier or later times, or a Saturday or Sunday but we cannot guarantee that a host will be available.  Do contact us to enquire about this at least 5-7 working days prior to your visit.  (All our hosts and management are volunteers).

Retreats are available for individuals or groups.  Group rates apply based on numbers and hours – please contact us for more info.  Individuals can book either of our two prayer rooms.  Groups can book either or both our prayer rooms.  One room comfortably seats  8-10 people, the other has two distinct ‘zones’, for 2-3,  but could seat more with additional folding chairs.  There is a limit of ten people in either room at any time.  Retreatants also have access to the house’s shared kitchen and toilet facilities.  The kitchen has a fridge for storing food and facilities and equipment for preparing and serving hot or cold meals.  There are also kettles or an urn for hot drinks, but our hosts would be happy to make hot drinks for you or your group.  Catering for groups can also be arranged if you contact us in advance.  Food can be consumed in our prayer rooms.  If you require a dining area it may be possible to book ‘The Yard’ separately through Holy Trinity Church.  (See here for more information.  There will be an additional cost for this).

There is no charge for retreats but a suggested donation of £12 per day for individuals. (Please ask about group rates). This includes tea/coffee and biscuits, exclusive use of one room and shared use of the other room and facilities in the Prayer House.

Please go to our Booking Page to contact us for further information and to book your retreat. We look forward to welcoming you.
