St. Michael's Convent Gerrards Cross

A Place for Retreat and Reflection

Our Convent and Retreat House at Gerrards Cross is open to Guests – offering space in which to rest and re-charge the spirit. (St. Michael's Convent, Ham Common is now closed.)

The house was built in 1909 in the Arts and Crafts style, and was extended in the 1960s. Pleasantly situated near the East Common in Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire, with many woodland walks nearby (yet only about 25 minutes from London Marylebone) we hope that your stay with us will offer an opportunity to step back from the rush of life into a place of reflection and prayer.

Retreats and Quiet Days

We welcome small groups and individuals (by the day and residentially) who would like to come for a Retreat or Quiet Day. What might this include?

• space to breathe, to sleep, to rest

• shared times of silence

• silent prayer

• joining the Community for worship & liturgy

• meals together, both silent and talking

• browsing in our library

• enjoying our garden and local walks

Our Meeting Room may also be booked by the day for Cell Group Meetings, Parish Teams and other groups, and can accommodate up to 10 people.

In addition, we offer a variety of Quiet Days, Retreats and Workshops.
