Welcome to our 2019/2020 programme.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic all retreats and events until 1st September have either been cancelled or postponed. This is under constant review and guided by UK Government advice.
Here you will find brief details of our varied day, weekend and week-long events.
Situated in the land of the northern saints in beautiful countryside on the borders of Northumberland and County Durham, our community based retreat centre is ideally placed to promote the development of both the spiritual and the natural world.
The theme for 2020 is “The God who Speaks…”. We will respond to the invitation of bishops of England and Wales to have a special focus on Scripture. Our themed retreats during this ‘Year of the Word’ invite you to consider new ways of attending to and living out the Gospel.
We have accommodation for up to 80 people across two houses, with additional bunk accommodation for up to 36 in our youth centre, all set in 110 acres of gardens, park and woodland.
We look forward to welcoming you!
It costs approximately £1,200 per day to run Minsteracres Retreat Centre. The suggested offerings indicated help us to cover our costs, but no one should feel excluded for financial reasons and concessions are available.
