You are always welcome to visit Worth Abbey, for prayer, mass, a monastic office or a retreat.

The Church is open every day for a moment of private prayer, or you can attend daily mass or one of the monastic offices.

Individual retreats for men

Individual men may stay in the ‘Monastery Guest House’ and eat with the monks in the monastic refectory. This is separate from our “Open Cloister” retreats programme. If you’d like to come on an individual retreat, contact the Monastery Guestmaster.

For the day

If you would like to bring a group for a day retreat, please contact the the Retreats Booking Secretary.

Joining a group retreat

Our ‘Open Cloister’ offers weekend and midweek residential retreats to groups and individuals, both men and women. There are also special retreats for young people and families.

We welcome everyone — whether you are Roman Catholic as we are, or not. We hope to have something to offer to anyone seeking God in the uncertainties of human life.

The retreat house is St Bruno’s. All guests staying for a few days share in the monastic prayer in the church. Unlike most other “Retreat Centres”, you will be coming, not just to a pleasant building, but also to share in the experience of a living, working Christian community.
