Sooooo good to be back to "my" Penhurst again and reconnect after a long time. Thank you! - Christine

A place of beauty

I look back at my time with you there and thank you for helping me make the decision that moving away was the right choice. I had not even considered the possibility before talking with you. Truly my eyes were opened at Penhurst! - Anon

I have heard from my daughter that she looks back to her visit and times with you as a major turning point which has given her strength to keep going through a tough patch. THANK YOU SO MUCH!! -

Guests relaxing

This is the first time I have just taken a day out like this to pray and it won't be the last. You have a superb setting and I enjoyed the link with Hudson Taylor who was one of my early heroes. I will certainly recommend to others . - Robin

Art Room2

I'm still talking to various folk about my time at Penhurst, even though I've been back for a week! On Sunday my Pastor's wife came to see how the week had gone because they were the ones who said I needed a break away. She said that she could see the change in my face - my joy had returned; Praise God! - Brenda

A place for contemplation

Just such a wonderful and peaceful time. Thank you! - Chrissie

A welcome awaits

We left reluctantly, having been built up in Christ for the year ahead. We will miss the log fire very much. A wonderful retreat place-We'll be back. - The Prayer Girls Retreat
