Staff team

We are not currently recruiting for paid positions, but may be in future... please come back for updates.   



Have you been reassessing life? Maybe you have a bit of time available? Maybe you would like to do some volunteering? If so, we may have just the place for you!

We are always on the lookout for volunteers and are currently specifically seeking more volunteers to help prepare, serve and clear up meals for our guests; clean our public rooms, maintain flowerbeds in the garden and also for more specialist areas, such as fundraising.

If you live further afield you can still come and stay while you volunteer for a few days or you can be an advocate for the retreat centre. You can ensure that we are always well advertised in your church and amongst your friends/colleagues. You can link to us via Facebook or Twitter so that your friends hear about us and can link to us through you. You can organise a fundraising event for us in your area... the list is endless. If you have anything that you are willing to offer that will enhance the centre we would love to hear from you.

If you are interested in volunteering some time in any of these or other areas, either regularly or occasionally, please contact us on  or 01424 892088.

Please note: Volunteers must have the right to live in the UK.  We are not able to provide visa sponsorship or accommodation.
