A place of peace and tranquillity, overlooking the Hambledon Hills, the Centre for Health and Pastoral Care offers therapeutic and safe space for people of all ages. Discovering acceptance and a relaxed environment, guests find empowerment to work towards their own health and well being, with professional support from counsellors, psychotherapists, masseurs and creative arts therapists. The friendship and care of staff and the residential community, excellent home cooking, gardens and animals, laughter and sharing, create a sense of belonging, and a few days or a couple of weeks becomes an important oasis in life for many people. The gentle Christian ethos of this open, radical community offers a space for guests to develop their own journey in a way that is right for them. Celebrating spiritual diversity, the community reflects theologically through research, accredited modular work and conferences arranged through The Centre for The Study of Theology and Health, an offshoot of Holy Rood House. Whatever draws you to Holy Rood House, as an individual or as a group, you will be sure to find it a special place, and we can be sure that our lives will be enriched by your visit.
