A retreat offers time to step aside from a busy life and spend time with God. Epiphany House provides a programme of Christian retreats and quiet days throughout the year. We also welcome those seeking quiet space for individual reflection on a personal retreat or wanting spiritual direction.

Centering Prayer is the intention to consent to God’s presence within ourselves allowing for a deeper relationship with God and to facilitate the development of Contemplative Prayer.
“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10
The life of prayer creates an ethos of service and hospitality that is the basis of all we do. Romans 12:12-13 is fundamental to the way we run this house and is at the fore-front of all we do — “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practise hospitality.”
Financial assistance to attend retreats
If you would like to come to Epiphany House on retreat but are struggling financially, there are some forms of assistance available:
The Association for Promoting Retreats (APR) offers a limited number of bursaries. These cover up to 50% of the costs of an individual guest’s residential retreat (up to a maximum of £150 for any person in a year). If you would like an APR bursary to come on retreat at Epiphany House, please contact us as we will need to apply to APR on your behalf for the bursary.
Thanks to a generous anonymous donor, Epiphany House has it’s own bursary fund for people who would like to come on a residential retreat but would otherwise struggle to afford it. In order to apply, a simple letter which briefly explains your desire to come on a retreat and your need of a bursary (this will be kept in absolute confidence) should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to The House Director, Epiphany House, Kenwyn, Truro, TR1 3DR.
