What we do

Daily Retreats

Our huts, Trinity on the left and Julian on the right, scroll down to see our third hut.

The house can be used by those who wish to make a day’s retreat on their own. A tray of tea and coffee will be provided in an individual room.  Our heated huts within the grounds may also be booked for quiet reflection time.

It is also possible for parish groups to use the house for a Quiet Day or for a Healing Day. It may be possible for a Living Well team member to facilitate/lead a day if it is appropriate or for the group to make their own arrangements.

The suggested daily costs per person are:
Whole Day, Unfacilitated – £15
Whole Day, Facilitated – £20
Half Day, Unfacilitated – £10
Half Day, Facilitated – £15

Outside Events

Healing Days are offered in ‘Hubs’ around the Diocese so that people can attend locally. These themed days offer opportunity for worship, learning, discussion and personal prayer.
There are Hubs in Folkestone, Lydd, Maidstone, Margate, Seasalter, Sittingbourne and Thanet.  Please see the programme for further details of these days.
We lead an annual St Lukestide Service of Healing and Blessing in Canterbury Cathedral. Our 2021 service will take place on Sunday 17th October, usually 6.30pm and we offer prayer the laying on of hands and anointing during this service.
We offer an annual service for those who have been abused, emotionally, physically or sexually. This service is called Sanctuary and is held in a different venue around our diocese each year. Prayer ministry and supportive listening is available for this sensitive area of care. Due to Covid19 we were unable to offer this service in 2020 and hope to offer it later this year.
Teams from The Living Well offer prayer ministry at Diocesan Events, Synods etc.
We are very happy to be invited to your local parish in some capacity if you would like to know more about our ministry, or to receive some encouraging input, preaching from us. It is a joy to serve with Jesus as our guide, to reach out in prayer to God, and see the Holy Spirit at work among us.


Professional counselling available for clergy and lay ministers through the Diocesan Counselling Team, contact details here.
