Early in 2016, St. Michael's Convent will close its doors to Guests for the last time as the Sisters prepare to move to "St. Michael's Convent, Gerrards Cross". We hope to receive Guests in our new home, late in 2016. For more information, please click here.
Until then, our convent at Ham will continue to offer space in which to rest and re-charge the spirit.
Pleasantly situated on Ham Common, close to the River Thames and Richmond Park, we think you will find this an ideal location for retreat and reflection. We are easy to get to as travel connections from London are good.
Our history is associated with education and social work. Today many who come here for a time of quiet reflection are themselves involved in outreach to others. We welcome groups and individuals of any faith, for individual Retreats and Quiet Days. We also have space for group and team meetings, and offer opportunities for spiritual accompaniment.
