The Monastic Community at Downside Abbey invite everyone to join them for the annual Easter Retreat from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th April 2020. An outline of the programme can be found here.

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. Early booking is advised for the best accommodation.

We are responding to the Bishop of Clifton’s invitation to join the Clifton Diocese in Communion as part of the Future Full of Hope launched in 2017. The theme of the Easter Retreat will be “Communion: Where two or three meet in my name, I am there among them”. Matthew 18:20

Create time and space to explore your faith with like-minded individuals at our Benedictine Retreat, while taking in the beautiful Somerset Monastery surroundings.

Book before Friday 13th March to secure your place. For more information, contact or telephone 01761 235194.
