Penhurst Retreat Centre is a small, friendly Christian Retreat Centre where a warm welcome is offered to all. You might recognise the building as the stone Manor House next door to the church in Penhurst. The house has been a Retreat Centre since 2002 offering residential retreats, day events and the opportunity for visitors to just come and enjoy the peace of the house and gardens.
The Centre is run by a team of local folk whose individual skills, passions and gifts are combined to create an environment that is welcoming, open, peaceful and beautiful. The food is prepared with love by the wonderful Janet. It is tasty, wholesome and wherever possible locally sourced.
Our desire is to serve and be available for the local community whenever we can. We would love you to come and use our grounds, come for a quiet day, come to talk and maybe pray with someone who is a good listener, attend an event on our programme [half price for magazine readers], use our art room or get involved by volunteering.
Without our amazing volunteers the Centre would not function. We need help in the kitchen, with the housekeeping, in the garden, in the office and ‘front of house’ welcoming guests and making them feel at home.
