St Bede's Pastoral Centre is a place of warm welcome and belonging for all - serving the city of York and beyond

St Bede’s Pastoral Centre seeks to be a place of welcome and belonging for all.

In all we do, our desire is to offer opportunities to explore, expand and deepen relationships with our own selves, with others, with the earth and with the great Mystery that we name God – to awaken and foster a dynamic connection to the Source of all life and potential.

We offer a wide range of events, courses and retreats designed to support greater wholeness and fullness of life.

We also have spacious and comfortable facilities available for hire. 

Ongoing Covid precautions

We will be delighted to welcome you back through our doors in the autumn term – it’s been a while! Our first day of opening will be Monday 6 September.

At present, our intention is to open during the day on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9am-5pm. The Centre will also be open Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6.30-9.30pm. We will continue to encourage all those coming into our building to use the sanitisers provided, wash hands regularly, respect safe distance (and be courteous to those who may feel less comfortable with contact) and to continue to wear masks when entering and moving around the building. We will also be continuing with our additional cleaning and ventilation protocols.

We hope this will continue to create an atmosphere of safety and welcome for all and will be grateful for your co-operation and patience as we fine tune our way into this next stage.

We’ll continue to keep a close eye on developments over the coming weeks and months. If any changes or adaptations to the above are needed, we will of course keep you informed.
