Launched in 2016, Retreat House Chester brings the benefits of retreat to the city. Rooted gently and deeply in Christian spiritual tradition, we seek to be relevant to all people, offering thoughtful and open ways to retreat right in the middle of Chester, while we work towards opening a non-residential city-based retreat house.

the blessing above the door still guides us today: 'Peace to this house...'
the old retreat house was formerly a house for Cathedral clergy
Abbey Square has sight of both the Town Hall and the Cathedral
