‘Come, all who are thirsty … come to the waters … listen, listen to me …’ Isaiah 55
"There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered his rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from his. Let us therefore be diligent to enter that rest …" Hebrews 4v9-11
The House of Bread is a place where people can come and simply be. It is a place of rest and retreat, a place to meet with God. As described by one guest, ‘it is an oasis’.
Guests are welcome to come and spend time on retreat for the day or come as a residential guest. We also host retreat weeks, and guided retreat days throughout the year – see the events page for more information.
Guests coming for the day will have the use of a room for the day and are free to use the chapel and to spend time in the garden and grounds. Residential guests will have an en-suite bedroom and the use of rooms in the Mill. Please see The Place for further information about the rooms and facilities.
We also warmly welcome guests on retreat to join us for our week day community times of worship, prayer and Holy Communion (see Our Events)
