The courtyard at Sheldon

Sheldon is home to the Sheldon Community. It is owned by an independent ecumenical charity the Society of Mary and Martha. We look forward to welcoming you to a place renowned for its beauty, its peace, and the vitality of life at its heart.

The Sheldon Community offers a wide range of retreats. Some are exclusively for people in Christian ministry and others are open to everyone. Sheldon is a cluster of converted farm buildings set within 45 acres of grounds with chapels and library.

For people in ministry: The Linhay Lodges are spacious and comfortable individual units, ideal for study, rest and emergency bolt-holes. 1:1 time available.

12,000-mile Service weeks provide a more sociable retreat experience with workshops, 1:1 time, led walks etc.

We also run courses open to everyone: a variety of led retreats, R5 weeks (read, rest, relax, retreat, recuperate), workshops and private retreats in Pig Pens and Hen Runs.

We’re always happy to talk through what you need – give us a call on 01647-252752.
