We simply offer a place to retreat, rest and find space to just 'be' with God, letting him do the ministering - and he does! We have plenty of varied Christian books to dip into, a lovely peaceful chapel, gardens down to the river Waveney with a summerhouse to sit in and enjoy God's creation. In the garden we also have a reflective trail based on Psalm 23, which has been developed by the Bible Society, particularly good to help you reflect on God's goodness and peace and to inspire your thoughts. Twice daily we have a time of reflection together using the Lectio 365 daily reflections. In the morning we also have some prayer and praise together. In the grounds we are developing a creative space, which will hopefully bless people in a variety of crafts and disciplines. If needed we do offer a listening ear.
Accommodation on Offer
The Georgian House has eight rooms some with on-suite facilities. We have a purpose built wing with disabled facilities for showering in a wet room. There is a Quiet Room which can be used for Day Guests or by those staying overnight. A small chapel has a keyboard where individuals can pray or praise the Lord. In our lounge guests can read or share with others and this is alongside a guest kitchen where they can prepare drinks throughout the day. Our dining room is small but able to be used for breakfasts and two course lunches. We serve a Tea Box for an evening meal. The house is set in two acres of land boardering the river Waveney with ample space to sit and be with the Lord. Parking is onsite and a bus stop is 200 meters away.
