Encounter God through Christian retreats 

One encounter with God can change everything. Spend time alone or with a group at Waverley Abbey and be refreshed, restored and revived.


Be refreshed and renewed in body, soul and spirit 

Start your quiet day in prayer with members of the Waverley Abbey Community, where you will be offered suggestions for how to spend the rest of your day. Enjoy the prayer room, prayer gardens, explore the Waverley Abbey ruins, and share a simple lunch.
