St Bede's Pastoral Centre

At St. Bede’s you will discover quiet space for spiritual renewal and refreshment alongside a range of events, courses and retreats aimed at supporting greater wholeness and fulness of life.

Short Series: we are offering a number of themed series this year. These are designed to run as a whole and participants are encouraged to attend all sessions if possible. Advance booking is required as numbers are limited.

Drop-ins: no advance booking is required for our regular drop-in events. Alongside our themed drop-ins we offer ‘chapel drop-ins’ for those who desire some lightly guided reflective prayer/meditation space on the way home at the end of the day.

Day & Evening Events: we offer a range of full and half day speaker events, workshops and reflective days. These generally include themed inputs, space for creative reflection and, where relevant, opportunity for gentle sharing and listening.

Retreats: although St. Bede’s is itself non-residential, we offer a variety of retreat opportunities: non-residential themed weekends; ‘taster’ retreats for those wanting to dip their toes into a first retreat experience; residential Individually Guided Retreats (IGRs) at St. Mary’s on the Cliff in Whitby for those who are familiar with going away on silent retreat; and, Retreats in Daily Life (RiDL) for those who wish to explore and go a little deeper in their prayer by being accompanied one to one over a number of weeks.

We look forward to welcoming you!
