Er gata?” : An eastern Tibetan greeting meaning something like “Has the way been hard? Are you weary?”

Hazelwood Barn 800

We realise that in both cross-cultural and local settings, partners in Christian Mission can face a range of strains and stresses. We’ve experienced plenty of them! Often a change of scene can be helpful. Occasionally, some time out is necessary.

On the borders of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, NW England, we offer an informal, supportive place of space and grace where workers in mission can rest, retreat or recover

This former guesthouse/B+B, Hazelwood Barn, has both separate spaces and communal areas. Living alongside the family, there’s plenty of room to withdraw but time to be together too.

En-suite rooms      Guest living room      Short or extended stays

Meals provided      Individuals + families welcome

A unique option:

  • Unpressured space to know God’s grace
  • Sensitive to the challenge of cross-cultural life and ministry.
  • A daily rhythm of prayer in place – you’re welcome to join us or not.
  • No formal programme or counseling (although we have various skills and helpful activities up our sleeve if requested).

It’s just that space and grace with food on the table and a listening ear if required.
