We aim to renew this place of hospitality, welcome and learning as a resource for Church and society in a turbulent and changing world.

After many months of lockdown it was a great joy to be able to begin the process of reopening the retreat house to guests last week.

We welcome you to come to CR and to share in our life. Some come regularly to talk with a brother, others spend a day or two experiencing this very different environment. Individuals and groups come on retreat and pilgrimage, share in the teaching and courses we offer and join us in worship and meals.
