Our new Convent and Retreat House at Gerrards Cross is scheduled to open early in 2018. Before then, renovations will take place to make the buildings more environmentally sustainable. When these are complete, accommodation for Guests and Retreatants (individuals and small groups) will be offered. 

There is a lovely garden, which we are eager to develop, and we have been told that there are a number of cross-country footpaths in the area which are worth exploring. 

The town of Gerrards Cross is nestled among the Chiltern Hills of Buckinghamshire, just beyond the western perimeter of Greater London. Walking distance from the train station to the house is about 15 mins, and the journey between Gerrards Cross and Marylebone is about 20 minutes. There is easy access to/from Oxford, Stratford upon Avon, Birmingham and Kidderminster. Gerrards Cross is also very well connected by road (M25, M40).  

We look forward to welcoming groups and individuals and, as we have done at Ham, we hope to offer:

  • space to breathe, to sleep, to rest
  • shared times of silence
  • silent prayer
  • joining the Community for worship & liturgy
  • meals together, both silent and talking
  • browsing in our library
  • enjoying our garden and walking in the countryside
  • fellowship with afternoon tea
