The Monastic Community at Downside Abbey invite everyone to join them for the annual Easter Retreat from Thursday 18th April to Sunday 21st April 2019.  

Young and old, families and friends are welcome to take part in a range of services, workshops and activities to celebrate this special time of the Christian year either as a resident in our school boarding accommodation or as a day delegate.

We are responding to the Bishop of Clifton’s invitation to join the Clifton Diocese in a Year of Prayer as part of the Future Full of Hope launched in 2017. The theme of the Easter Retreat will be “Lord, teach us to pray”.

Create time and space to explore your faith with like-minded individuals at our Benedictine Retreat, while taking in the beautiful Somerset monastery surroundings. The retreat provides the spiritual petrol for the forthcoming year. An outline of the programme can be found here.

All are welcome as residents or day delegates. Please not we cannot offer discounted accommodation rates for residents not staying for the full Retreat.
