Saint Columba’s House has a long history.

In 1861, an Anglican religious community, the Sisterhood of St Peter, was founded to run hospitals and to live a life of prayer and care.

St Peter’s Convalescent Hospital and Convent opened in Woking in 1883.

In 1967, St Columba’s House Retreat Centre was built at the end of the convent’s garden. St Columba’s House continues the vision of the Sisterhood to this day, supporting wellbeing and spiritual growth for all who visit.

The team looks forward to welcoming you to Saint Columba’s House, which is on Maybury Hill. There is parking. For more information, visit stcolumbas
