Clergy Information

For Ministers

We are always glad to welcome those in ministry for a day or for a longer stay – to make yourself at home in the chapels, the house and the grounds, to eat in our café or dining room, and perhaps to share in the daily prayer-life of the Launde community for a while. Or if you want to be sure of time on your own, you can book a Shepherd’s Hut for the day. Members of our clergy team are also available for informal one-to-one conversations or more formal spiritual direction by prior arrangement.

If you prefer something more organised then we also run an open programme of quiet days, led retreats and other events throughout the year, and we sometimes have events just for ministers. We’re also delighted to welcome church or charitable groups for day or residential bookings – either bring your own speaker or ask if we can help — so keep us in mind when you’re planning your team away day or church weekend!
