Did you Know?

That Abbotswick House of Prayer is here to help you find peace, tranquillity and personal space, to pray or just be…

Set in 14 acres of beautiful grounds, the house is open everyday (except Mondays and during the month of August) from 10.30am to 8pm.

It has space where you can relax, a chapel for personal prayer, and a reference library with Christian resource materials.

The House of Prayer, otherwise known as Abbotswick, can provide hospitality to those wishing to make a quiet retreat. It has 14 rooms, most with en-suite shower facilities with homemade meals provided at very reasonable donation rates. It can also accommodate groups for retreats and days of prayer and contemplation, confirmation groups, family days, etc. There is a small hermitage in the grounds for people wishing to experience even more solitude.

Quote of the week:

For me, prayer is an aspiration of the heart, it is a simple glance directed to heaven, it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trial as well as joy; it is something great, supernatural, which expands my soul and unites me to Jesus.

St Therese of the Child Jesus
