Non-guided Retreats

The College offers a quiet setting for a break from the rigours of day-to-day life so that you can return to work refreshed and reinvigorated. In term-time, you can choose to participate in as many aspects of the life of the College as you wish, including worship, lectures and social events - or come in the vacations for a quiet place for rest and reflection. The Cuddesdon Sisters are in year-round residence and welcome the company of visitors.

Guided Retreats

Space to reflect, pray and worship, and time to be creative. Each day there will be silence, worship together, a meditation from the chaplain and plenty of time and guidance in a creative skill.  Help and encouragement is given to everyone, beginner or experienced alike.  No previous experience is necessary and all that is needed is a willingness to be open and to explore how our creativity can be a vehicle through which God can speak to us.  We are also happy to include those who don't wish to practice a creative skill but might like to come for the silence; maybe to read, to study or to walk.
