A residential art retreat led by local artist Maureen Edwards with Revd. Derek Collins as chaplain. Take time out in the beautiful house & gardens of Epiphany House, Truro to deepen your connection to God and explore spirituality expressed through painting, light and colour. Suitable for all levels of ability, from beginner to more experienced artists, the retreat includes one-to-one painting tuition, spiritual accompaniment and plenty of free time for painting, prayer and relaxation.
What happens on a painting & prayer retreat?
Each day begins with a short service of worship. During the day there will be input and help for your artwork, but also plenty of free time for painting and for quiet. There will be opportunities throughout the retreat for spiritual accompaniment and pastoral needs. Evenings include a time of fellowship and reflection, ending with night prayer. Please bring your own art materials, but there is also a limited supply available if you need any extras.
Retreat at Epiphany House
Smaller than some retreat centres with just 12 guest bedrooms, Epiphany House is an historic, comfortable and peaceful house set in lovely gardens. Each bedroom has a hand basin and is close to bathroom facilities (bathrobes are provided). Our catering team enjoy a well deserved reputation for good food and all meals will be freshly prepared in-house.

The house has plenty of free parking and is easily accessible from Truro city centre and the railway station.
