Private Retreats & Respite Time

Throughout the year people come to Wistaston Hall to make a private retreat or simply to have some time for rest and relaxation. Depending on time of year this can be done on a full board basis. In 2021 with the opening of the Grange we are delighted to be able welcome people on a self catering basis. The Grange is fully equipped with its own kitchen, prayer room and lounge area.

At Wistaston Hall we offer Spiritual Direction to all those who need it. Spiritual Direction is the process of accompanying a person on their spiritual journey. It is for anyone, it is confidential, and is usually a one-on- one session with a certified Spiritual Director.

During your journey, your Spiritual Director will speak with you to reflect on what is happening in your world and will help you to notice how God is at work in your life. From this point, your director will help you to develop your personal skills to better communicate with God through prayer and meditation.
