The Convent offers hospitality to people who often return year after year.
We have two venues:

Brownlow House is a modern well equipped guest house providing a space for retreat to both groups and individuals. It is situated in our beautiful gardens which provide peace and serenity for visitors and residents.

St Michael's Cottage in Winson, Gloucestershire, is our Retreat House, converted in 1984 from the disused village schoolroom last used in 1923. When not in use by the Sisters it welcomes visitors.

We welcome those who want to come to Oxford for short study courses, as well as those who wish to come on retreat.

The flexible use of the guest house allows small groups, including clergy cell groups, to come together for recuperation or work planning. They appreciate the sensitive and non-intrusive way in which their needs are provided through the arranging of rooms and availability of refreshments.

Individuals are welcome for short stays or as alongsiders. They are welcome to serve in our community and join us in the Daily Office and Eucharist.
