A Place of Prayer, Space
and Quiet Reflection

Welcome to The Retreat House, Pleshey

The Retreat House is situated at the edge of a small, moated village in the heart of the Essex countryside and is a place of prayer, space and quiet reflection.

We offer a programme of Retreats and Quiet Days, many of which are suitable for people who have never been on a retreat or quiet day before.

Walk softly in the ways of God
Listen gently to the voice of God
Sit quietly in the love of God
Pray humbly to the heart of God
Act boldly in the strength of God
Go forth in His name

Times of Open Prayer in the Chapel

Tuesday mornings, 9:00-9:30am, there is a time of led prayers.

Friday lunchtimes, 12:00-1:00pm offers an opportunity to spend some time in silent prayer.

Both events are open to all.
