Retreats at Sarum College

Cathedral from CollegeSarum College offers a chance to unwind, be quiet and pray, sleep or walk, enjoy the Cathedral and its Close, browse in our library and read.

In addition to self-directed reflection, prayer and study, you can tailor your stay by adding mentored reflection, or opting for a guided study leave or sabbatical. Our Renewing Ministry programme includes sessions with a ministry consultant or spiritual director.

We also run a number of days of spiritual reflection throughout the year led by Pat Clegg and individually guided retreats in the summer.

“I needed to take some time away to reflect and rethink – Sarum College offered me the perfect opportunity to do so.”

Ian, January 2014
