Programme

Note: due to the coronavirus outbreak we are still unable to welcome guests for residential stays or take new bookings for them.  As a sign of hope we are glad to announce our exciting online retreats and programmed events up to the middle of December.

Scargill offers a wide range of Christian holidays, conferences and retreats with our resident Christian community. You’re very welcome, whatever your background or Christian tradition.

Join one of our organised programmes below, with a range of topics, activities and speakers, or pick any dates we’re open and do your own thing. You can visit Scargill on your own, come with your family, bring a church or group, or become a Working Friend.
