As a community of prayer, set in beautiful grounds and surrounding countryside, the College offers an ideal environment in which visitors may enter into spiritual quietness and peace.
We are glad to welcome guests into our life of prayer. It is an enrichment for us, and we hope a source of inspiration for others.Groups are welcome for structured or informal quiet days, to gather for prayer and discernment at times when important decisions must be made, or simply to enjoy peace and space together. Up to 24 people can be included.
The Upper Chapel has space for the largest groups to meet together and is fully equipped with a hearing aid induction loop. The Lower Chapel seats up to 14 people and offers a unique place of calm for quiet meditation and smaller groups. The 9 acres of beautiful grounds offer an idyllic setting for walking in the College’s woodlands or private paths, or simply sitting quietly to enjoy the flowers and lawns. The Eucharist may be celebrated for a group by the a member of the College, who is also available by arrangement to provide spiritual guidance and material for reflection.
Individuals can stay for longer in the en suite guest rooms, and are welcome to join in College worship. Alternatively, they may simply prefer to come for a day of personal reflection.
