Still here to help

Although our doors are currently closed to visitors, we are working hard to adapt to the changes and provide services in different ways. Please check the News page for posts and let us know what you need from us.

Formation

While Thornycroft is closed and we can’t provide recollections, we will resort to virtual means of formation instead. Here are some recollections, holy hours and meditations to help you keep close to God during this time of isolation.

Welcome to Thornycroft Hall

Thornycroft Hall is a conference centre that holds spiritual and cultural activities throughout the year. All spiritual activities are entrusted to the Opus Dei Prelature. Thornycroft hosts activities for people of different ages and walks of life. These include seminars and conferences on cultural and spiritual topics, family development programmes, sports and activity weekends for young people, retreats and days of recollection. Thornycroft Hall is owned by the Siddington Trust Limited (registered charity no 282339).

We have events for people of all ages

Retreats

A retreat is a time spent away from your ordinary occupation, when you can reflect on how you live your faith in your everyday work, with your family and with other people.

Recollections

Recollections take place twice a month for women and once a month for secular clergy. These few quiet hours are an ideal opportunity for personal prayer and reflection on different aspects of Christian life.

For secular clergy

Conferences

Thornycroft hosts conferences that support the Catholic faith and culture across the north of England. Participants explore ways of making a practical impact on the heart of civil society. Conferences are held for the laity and the clergy.
