Listing Description

SPEC is the diocese of Westminster’s residential retreat centre. But if you want to see what it is like, the best thing to do is to ring up or text to arrange a visit. We start recruiting from January; and we normally finish around April. We work with young people from the diocese on residential and day groups – giving them a Spiritual and Personal Encounter with Christ.

We live, pray, eat, work and learn together – we are a big community with two houses – a tudor / Victorian one that we live in, and a brand new one that we run retreats from. They are a tennis ball’s throw from each other. We do everything from making beds to changing hearts; and we start with our own by being open to what God wants to say to us and do in our lives. Come see. It’s awesome.
