We accomodate those who suffer from child bereavement


John Paul Retreats has been offering retreats for bereaved families since January 2016. For more information, news or features about this outreach, please go to #news.


Anthony McMahon, who lost his brother John Paul in 1984 when he was a young boy, has made this peaceful Retreat apartment available to bereaved parents throughout the UK. He writes "I just want to offer something to people who have suffered like us...I hope that many get time to take a break at the Retreat, as they continue to deal with the loss that never leaves you".


We urgently need your help to maintain the general costs of running our retreat facility. In addition to facility expenses and building insurance, we are hoping to expand the facility to improve building accessibility. You can help to keep our retreat operational for everyone by making any type of donation. Donation amounts are entirely at your discretion.

You can make a donation directly by using the following bank details for your bank transfer:
