The senior Diocesan team, in consultation with colleagues at the Diocesan Retreat and Conference Centre, have today (13th March 2020) decided to close the Retreat Centre with immediate effect.
The closure will be for a minimum period of eight weeks (two months), and thereafter will be kept under regular review.
This decision has been made in light of the current concerns over the spread of Coronavirus and has been taken to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our staff and guests is paramount.
The Management Team at the Retreat Centre will be contacting all those who have made bookings to discuss their booking with them directly.

The Chapel is at the heart of the House and is adjacent to the spacious entrance hall.
The chapel is always open for both individual and corporate prayer and meditation. It seats up to 60 and is available for use by all groups visiting the House. It may also be used as a rehearsal room for choirs staying at the House.
This simple but beautiful building dates back to Victorian days. It was originally sited elsewhere in the city and was carefully dismantled and rebuilt on its current site.
