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:
[In prayer] Christians learn to share in Christ’s own spiritual experience and to see all things through his eyes. From him, the only-begotten Son of the Father, we come to know God and can thus kindle in others the desire to draw near to him.
