We are looking forward to a fantastic chance of spending time together as a church family in the amazing surroundings of Lee Abbey in October.








About the venue

As you may know, lee Abbey Devon is an interdenominational and international Christian community, hosting retreats and conferences in North Devon. The spacious country house overlooks the sea and is set in 280 acres of woodland and farmland on the coast of Exmoor.  As a guest of Lee Abbey, you are free to join in as many (or as few!) programme sessions as you like.  Their vision is that you experience a new or renewed encounter with the living Lord Jesus Christ.
