Attic Retreats, 65 Maidstone Road, Chatham

There has been a lot of work done on the house and in the garden in the last 6 months and we are now ready to welcome visitors. There was an official opening of Attic Retreats on the 4th of October and we have had our first retreatants!              

The vision for 65 Maidstone Road is to support and nourish the church and its workers through offering a space for people to seek God and reflect on their experiences.

The ground floor with two meeting rooms, a chapel and a garden is available for smaller day groups.  The first floor will be used for the members of the emerging community.

As I mentioned above there a lot of work has been done in the garden. It is slowly becoming a prayer full space with different palaces to sit and reflect. We have even been blessed with a summer/prayer house in the garden.

After a lot of work in attic we are now ready to received visitors!

We have decided to call the retreat space at the top of the house Attic Retreats. Attic Retreats has two bedrooms, a prayer room, a bathroom and a small kitchenette for people to do their own self-catering.

We are particularly thinking of all those who in different ways are serving the church and need to come away and rest for a while and listen to God. The community members will be available to offer spiritual accompaniment to those who would like some guidance during their stay and for those who are interested in making the Ignatian Spiritual Exercises, they will be offered in all their different forms.

The attic will give the people who come to stay a peaceful and calming environment in the midst of the busy town of Chatham.

Only 7 min walk from Chatham station and with good parking facilities, it is easy to access.
