A place of hospitality, retreat and re-creation


Retreats for visiting groups


Eastbourne is a beautiful setting for hospitality, retreat and re-creation. Since 2014 St Albanas has developed a growing ministry of retreat hospitality, but the scope of this ministry is scaled back until our church and hall buildings are strengthened / redeveloped.

We are still able to host individuals. 

We can also advise you on local walks and opportunities to enjoy the blessings of this beautiful environment.

To get here, we are a short ferry ride across the harbour from Wellington and easily accessible by car or bus.

To talk through possibilities for an individual or group retreat,
