Precautionary measures we are putting in place
We recognise that many people will be coming away for the first time since lockdown and will want to know that we are doing everything we can to keep our guests and staff team safe. You can rest assured that your safety is our highest priority.
The following measures will be in place and we will be continually reviewing our procedures to ensure we are working in line with government guidelines:
As part of booking terms and conditions we ask guests to agree to:
We trust that these measures reassure you ahead of your stay with us. If you have any questions you are very welcome to contact myself or one of the team.
We look forward to welcoming you to our ‘home from home’.
There are three main times in our calendar:
Led Retreats -These are focused retreats on a specific topic or theme led by speakers who are experts in their field. There is space within the retreat for both learning and reflection. When a retreat does not have exclusive use of the house, others are welcome to stay without joining in the retreat itself. Most retreats run for Mon-Fri or Fri-Sun and some are open to day visitors.
Time & Space - this is time we set aside in our programme for individual personal retreat for those over 18yrs old. The house is kept quieter in order to provide an environment that is more conducive to reflection and there are opportunities for worship and healing prayer. Individuals, couples or small groups are most welcome at this time. Our Quiet Days and Healing Services are held during Time and Space. You are welcome to come for one night or longer.
Open Time - Outside of Time and Space we are very much a venue to be used! We are perfectly located for those wanting to simply get away, use us as a base for exploring the local area or to attend an event locally. We also welcome families during these times and offer space for a variety of meetings, celebrations, courses and events such as prayer breakfasts or training events whether local or national.
We will be hosting a variety of different events here next year, look below to find out more about what’s happening here next year. If you would like us to send you our 2020 brochure then email us on [email protected] or give us a call on 01202 764776.
Bookings are now open for ‘The power of His peace in us’. This is an online 8-week Christ focused meditation, relaxation and scriptural programme to inspire you to live from peace.
Award winning author of 6 books, with a new book - ‘The Celtic Year’ - being published in 2020 (BRF); founder of Waymark Ministries (www.waymarkministries,com) and UK Deputy Guardian of the Community of Aidan and Hilda, a globally dispersed Celtic Christian community, David brings a different perspective to The Greenhouse with his passion for the early Christian church and how seekers who perhaps find it difficult to do so in mainstream church can be drawn to God through its more ancient tradit
Time & Space is time we set aside in the programme for personal retreat and usually runs from Monday to Friday although you are welcome to come for the whole time or just one night. Individuals, couples or small groups are most welcome during this time and our pastoral team are on hand to pray with you if you would like.
Enneagram 1 – God shaped people.
Enneagram (Greek for ‘9 points’) describes nine personality types and is a powerful tool for spiritual growth through understanding ourselves and others.
This weekend will be led by Ali Male and Melanie O'Reilly, both trained to teach Enneagram in the Christian tradition.
Run by Acorn this two-day course explores what it means to listen to God, yourself and those around you. It will help you to appreciate afresh the lost gift of listening and will offer you safe structures in which you can use silence to minister to others. You will be equipped with effective, reflective listening skills and have opportunities to be listened to, and to listen to others, in a supportive environment.
Advent is a significant period in the modern Christian calendar, just as it was for the ancient Celtic Christians. Over this weekend, David Cole, author of the book Celtic Advent (BRF), will be sharing aspects of Advent and the lead up to Christmas as celebrated and focused on by the ancient Celtic Christians and monastic centres.
Come and join in and maybe discover something more to this season.
The best event of the year without a doubt is our Christmas Break Away! Due to current restrictions social activities will be lower key than usual but there will still be times of prayer and reflection, fellowship, fun and great food and the chance to enjoy the beautiful South Coast.
Come and celebrate the New Year at The Greenhouse! We have availability from 31 December to 3 January for individuals, families and groups of up to 6 to join us for New Year. Please call or book online. Due to current restrictions we will not be able to provide a programme of social activities as we would normally do, but there will be times of prayer, reflection and the opportunity to enjoy great food, fellowship and the beautiful Dorset coast.
