The Kitchen  

There is a small kitchenette for groups using the chapel, and a large commercial kitchen in the house. 

The Chapel  

is used most days for a short devotional time.  Guests are welcome, but there is no pressure to attend. Guests are welcome to use the chapel as a quiet space and for their personal devotional use if it is not in use by another group.

The Chapel is available for use by small groups for day seminars or meetings. It will seat 20 people comfortably.  Meals can be provided, or a group may wish to bring their own lunch.

The Library  

contains a variety of inspirational books and DVDs. It is a quiet room with a desk provided, where you can spend time alone, or is suitable for a small group meeting (3-4 people).
