Sarum 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.
When public safety conditions allow, we run individually guided retreats during advent and in the summer.
When I arrived, exhausted and sensitive, I was grateful not to be asked by Reception were I came from, whether I had had a good journey etc. That was the kind of hospitality I needed: a non-intrusive welcome that was found in ancient cultures and still survives in some societies today, where the host asks questions about a stranger and his journey only when the visitor has rested and been given food and drink.
