Environmental and Retreat Centre

Near East Braintree, located on the edge of the boreal forest, we are launching an environmental and retreat centre; a living lab composed of 220 acres of forests, meadow and river valley. This beautiful place offers a unique combination of sensitive, yet accessible wildlife habitat that makes it more than a showpiece and is a critical part of connecting people to place. Here future students, interns, guests and volunteers from around the world will be immersed in compassionate, Christian engagement with creation.
