Welcome to Roy's Retreat
Roy's Retreat, promoting contemplative practice in the Christian mystical and prophetic tradition.
Quote of the Season
James Finley was a monk at Gethsemane Abbey and had Thomas
Merton as his Spiritual Director. Finley says “what I got from Merton most of
all was this: the grace of God utterly and wholly permeates our lives, just as
they are in the present moment. All of our failures and weaknesses are
absolutely irrelevant in the face of such all-pervading grace.”

About Roy's Retreat
Roy’s Retreat is a non denominational Christian spirituality
centre which promotes contemplative practice in the Christian mystical and
prophetic tradition. We promote contemplative prayer and living through Retreat
ministry. The Christian mystical tradition is being reclaimed in our age and
has great riches to offer a world so spiritually poor. Both religious and lay
people are coming alive to the contemplative dimension of the Christian
tradition and we are pleased at Roy’s Retreat to play our small part in
creating opportunities where people from any denomination can experience
contemplative prayer. Indeed, any genuine spiritual seeker is welcome at the
Retreats offered through Roy’s Retreat.
