A place of beauty

Our Alpha Day folks all thought it was a wonderful venue and were really touched by the tranquility and the real sense of the presence of God. The lunch was excellent-one of the nicest I can remember. - James

A welcome awaits

I felt very ‘held’ by the depth of your collective prayer and this enabled me to relax into my retreat. Thank you so much for the work that you do for Our Lord in providing a ‘safe place’ for retreatants simply to ‘be’. This is such a valuable ministry for the family of God in today’s world. - Linda

One of the bedrooms

I can't put into words how much better I feel. As we drove down the drive this morning my eyes were streaming with tears, just as they had been when I first walked in our bedroom last Sunday... a very special week in the caring, respectful serenity of Penhurst. My outlook on the months ahead is a lot brighter. -

Classic view of the Centre
