Our Programme

As we work towards opening the retreat house, we are hosting events in other venues, offering a taste of retreat in the city.  Read on for more on what's happening.


...a time of stillness – quiet retreat time, sometimes drop-in, sometimes to be booked.


...different ways of developing our reflective nature – conversation, prayer times and workshops.


...spiritual tradition in a Christian context, from ancient wisdom to contemporary spirituality – workshops, courses, and talks.


Our programme will always be related to the efforts of daily life, as individuals and as communities.

Please scroll down for our current programme.  Reports of past events appear on our NEWS page.

Please click on the images below to find out more about each event: our website contains the most up-to-date information on our programme so it always best to check here.  Please make a special note of location: some are different from last year!

A note about access: We aim to make our activities accessible.  While we are in our temporary rooms in Abbey Square there are a few steps up to the front door.  Please get in touch if this is a concern - thank you.

Our activities are only open to over-18s.



A note about charges: We make every effort to keep our costs down and suggest charges in line with our running costs.  If you are able to top this up with a donation to our Appeal, it would be tremendously welcome.  If you find the suggested charge beyond your means, please get in touch.

Advance booking is required, please.  For 2018, events need to be booked through Retreat House Chester except where indicated.  If you email us, please check your junk mail if you do not see a response: we will always respond within a few days (usually sooner!). Payment is only by cheque ('Retreat House Chester') or cash but please do not send cash in the post. 

Thank you!
