BOOKINGS NOT YET OPEN. An opportunity for some of our `Penhurst Family` and volunteers to join in some practical projects in the house and grounds. Come and enjoy the beauty and fellowship of Penhurst, while also helping maintain and develop the centre together.

The `Penhurst Family` includes people from across the UK and worldwide who believe in and feel a deep connection to the ministry of this small retreat centre, and commit to praying regularly and intentionally for the retreat centre. For more information about and how to join, see:

Possible projects for this weekend include the following, and will be updated as needed:

Apple Harvest - As the apple trees are shaken, help gather the falling apples into crates, ready to be taken to a local farm for pressing into apple juice.

Penhurst Pickles and Chutney - Chopping lots of veg, stirring the pot and filling jars with lovely home-made pickle and chutney.

Friday evening will include information and briefing about the projects, which will take place for about 4-5 hours on Saturday (with a break for lunch), followed by time for a satisfying rest and fellowship. Some projects may be finished on Sunday morning as appropriate, followed by a hearty Penhurst lunch.

The normal Penhurst rhythm of prayer will also be offered on Friday and Saturday.

Online booking is not available for this weekend. To book, please contact the office on or 01494 892088 and remember to let us know which project(s) you are interested in joining. If you are unsure which projects you could manage, please phone us.
