Retreat House Chester

Clare Black receives a cheque for Chester Retreat House from Bob Ellis (former CEO, Warwick International Ltd)

Launched in 2016, Retreat House Chester brings the benefits of retreat to the city. Rooted gently and deeply in Christian spiritual tradition, we seek to be relevant to all people, offering thoughtful and open ways to retreat right in the middle of Chester, while we work towards opening a non-residential city-based retreat house.

Retreat House Chester is currently running from office and meeting space in temporary premises in 9 Abbey Square, right next door to the old retreat house. We will run retreat activities in various venues, usually Chester Cathedral, as we continue to work towards opening the retreat house. To make all this happen, we need your support: please see The Fifteen Appeal for more on how you can help bring retreat to the city.
