There will be an opportunity to Gift Aid your donation, and/or to direct your gift to the brothers, or sisters or a particular house, after you have completed the final page on PayPal (PayPal account not required).

Contact details

The addresses and contacts of all our houses can be found  below – but please note that some houses are quite small or have particular ministries that make receiving guests and visitors more difficult than others. Hilfield SSF, Alnmouth SSF, Metheringham CSF and Glasshampton SSF are houses where guest and retreat accommodation is most likely to be available. Please, read their information by following the links, and take note about the need for advance booking of your visit.
