We offer both weekday and weekend retreats so that you can come to the Oxford Centre and enjoy a few days of peace, beauty and contemplation.

Contemplative Weekend Retreat

We invite you to join us in a series of weekend retreats to learn how to connect to God through the art of contemplative seeing, listening and reading.

In each of the weekend retreats, you will learn different skills and understand how poetry or photography can help you connect with God. Learn how to approach reading, listening or taking photographs in a contemplative way and be given time to practise this. You will also be shown how to pray with one of your images or piece of prose you have chosen.
We invite you all to join us either in person as a weekend resident or as an online participant – united in heart and soul, together for the fresh outpouring on us of the joyful experience of God.

Weekend Retreats

The Carmelite Priory in Oxford is set in seventeen acres of woodland, within an oasis of beautiful hills, woods and meadows, which offers a perfect setting for spiritual renewal.

Weekday Retreats

We offer weekday retreats in which guests meet privately with an accompanying retreat guide each day, and then spend the rest of the day in prayer. Do get in touch for more information
