Programme 2018

Step into peace…

We invite you to step aside from your daily life into the peace and tranquillity of Epiphany House. Take some time out to meet with God and be refreshed and renewed in his presence.

Our programme includes opportunities from half and full-day quiet days to weekend or week-long retreats, from creative, interactive workshops to contemplative prayer, or simply time for rest and recuperation. Come as you are, and explore the depth of God’s love and his goodness.

‘It was a very relaxed retreat in beautiful surroundings – definitely a ‘sacred space’.’
‘There is a deep feeling of prayer and healing’
‘Accommodation and food all excellent.’
– feedback from guests in 2016
