Day Guests

Rest and renewal photoDay Guests are always welcome at St Benedict’s Centre. You can book an individual study/retreat room for £12. This includes hot drinks, the use of the beautiful grounds, the opportunity for private prayer in the pilgrim chapel.   

You may find it helpful to book your quiet study or reflection dates in advance, and we would encourage you to do so.  If you need to cancel nearer the time, this can be done easily and without cost.  

We ask you to bear the following in mind:  

  1. When moving around the buildings or sitting in a meeting room guests are asked to wear face masks.
  2. Hand sanitiser is provided and guests are asked to use it on entering and leaving the building.
  3. Study rooms have kettles and facilities for making hot drinks. We cannot provide communal drinks or food.
  4. The Pilgrim Chapel can be used by an individual for private prayer, and you may join the Sisters in the guest chapel for their Offices. 

Payment is by bank transfer on receipt of an invoice or on the day by card.

If you would like to book an individual room for a day please contact

We look forward to welcoming you at the Centre.

St Benedict Days: Stability 15th February

The first in a series of day courses that will explore the principles of Benedictine Spirituality, led by Rev Jane Winter. Our first day focuses on stability.

We live in a time that can feel very destabilised when the things that give structure to our lives are threatened -things like job losses, illness, a house move, retirement, the pandemic, any change to a daily routine.

Stability gives us a sense of security which is essential for our wellbeing and flourishing.
During the day we will discover what Benedict meant when he required stability from the monks who joined his community. We will look at what the bible teaches us about stability. We will consider how we can draw from Benedictine stability when we do not live in a monastic community and how we can apply Christian to our daily living.

Cost £20 including hot drinks and biscuits, please bring lunch with you.
To book please email bookings@stbenedictscentre

Walking with Jesus 22nd February

Join us at the Centre at 10am to start the walk at 10.30, reflecting on a characteristic or attribute of Jesus’ ministry.

We aim to be back in time to join the Sisters for Sext at 12 noon. After lunch you will have the opportunity to retrace the morning walk again on your own or with a small group; walk in the Centre grounds, or just to sit and reflect further in solitude. We conclude with an act of worship in the Pilgrim chapel at 3pm.
