A Northumbria Community House of Christian Retreat and hospitality in Southern Normandy – France – has been established for people to come and stay, following a monastic rhythm to the day.

Its inspiration and vision comes from the Celtic tradition of Christianity, deriving much from the Celtic Saints of Europe, as well as the Desert Fathers and Mothers of the Middle East.

Its core religious beliefs are based on a simple Christian creed, with a firm commitment to the triune God, ‘seeking His face’ as ‘the one thing necessary’; thereafter being prepared to go ‘wherever the Father leads.’



The original house and grounds were at Suvigny, Romagny.
