Renewing our House of Prayer

Orangery 2 (Medium)The Pleshey Appeal – Renewing our House of Prayer.

The Pleshey House of Retreat has served the Diocese of Chelmsford admirably for over 100 years and remains popular both within and outside the area served. It does, however, require much needed work to bring facilities up to ‘modern standards’.

On the following pages you will find updates of the work completed so far.

Gatehouse 1 (Medium)How you can help?

A gift to The House of Retreat refurbishment is a gift to present and future generations to continue the work of encouraging holy living.
Every gift of money, whether large or small, and every gift of time and talents will carry forward that work. To make a donation to the future rebuilding work to The House, you can;

  • …make a donation via Search for House of Retreat or Pleshey and follow directions from here.
  • …enclose your gift in an envelope with one of the forms that you can download below; the Gift Aid form enables us not only to claim back tax from the government but we will send you the House’s thanks for your generosity.
  • …set up a standing order: for example, £25.00 each month for 3 or 4 years
  • …one-off donation – cheques should be made payable to The Retreat House Pleshey.
  • …pledging a legacy – more information is available for you in the leaflet below.Gatehouse 2 (Medium)
