How does our programme work?

We carefully plan our programme of events to ensure there is a balance to the rhythm of life here. Our Time and Space weeks are ideal if you want to come to have some personal retreat time. Each of them have a different theme related to the discipleship journey and are ideal opportunities for you to come and spend quiet time away with God. Our led retreats and courses are perfect if you'd like to engage with a specific topic or area of need in your life. Day events take place every month, ranging from led quiet days to services of healing and worship events. And the rest of the time, we're available for individuals and groups to come and use our facilities and make the most of our stunning location near the coast.

Time and Space

This is time we set aside in the programme for individual personal retreat. 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 during this time. Our Quiet Days and Healing Services are held during Time and Space.

There are morning and evening worship services and our Pastoral team are available every day to pray with you if you would like. The number of nights and accommodation basis is up to you.

Weekend Breaks

Are you needing spiritual and physical refreshment and only have a few days available? Why not have a weekend away here at The Greenhouse. We are within walking distance of a 13 mile stretch of sandy beaches and the popular town of Bournemouth and just a 10 minute walk from the village of Westbourne with lovely shops and restaurants. By car you have the natural beauty spots of the Purbecks and New Forest, it really is the perfect place for a getaway. Book soon as we anticipate spaces will go quickly.

Led Retreats

Throughout the year, we host a variety of themed weeks, weekends or mid-week courses which are led by excellent and experienced speakers.  They are perfect for individuals interested in particular topics.
Each retreat includes full-board accommodation and all course materials (unless otherwise stated).

Open Time

 Outside of Time and Space and Led retreats, 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.
