Resources for Retreat Centre Wardens

The Retreat Association has many years' experience of working with Christian-based retreat centres in order to support their work. Through this partnership, retreat centres also enable the Retreat Association to support individuals and groups looking for a retreat.


Retreats Handbook

Our annual Retreats Handbook lists over 200 retreat centres across and beyond the UK and is a unique publication for all those interested in Christian spirituality. It is available in Christian bookshops, retreat centres and directly from the office, as well as being sold as an eBook. It is possible to list your retreat centre in the handbook (see below)



Listing your retreat centre details in the handbook is free if you are a member of the Retreat Association or any one of its denominational group. Annual subscription rates vary according to the size of your centre.


It is possible to advertise separately in our handbook (where members receive a 10% discount on rates) and on our website. We also have a Job Vacancy page.

Details about how to advertise with us can be found here.


Find a Retreat Map and List

One of the most popular parts of our website is 'Find a Retreat', which is viewed around 9000 times per month. This contains direct links to retreat centre websites. Retreat centres can be included on these pages for an annual fee.



We invite retreat centres to work in partnership with us to organise training days and quiet days at their centres. These popular days encourage the work of the centre and also offer opportunities for training and reflection to the local community.
