I will let everyone know about The Mirfield Centre and tell them it is a wonderful peaceful place to come and the events / courses are brilliant.
As ever the day had all the features of a course at the centre. Lovely grounds, caring friendliness of ‘the team’, whatever their role. The pervading atmosphere of calm, and immediate togetherness with other participants. These all add up to a time not only of learning but refreshment and encouragement. The additional option of sharing the Eucharist with the brothers is for me a true blessing.
The speaker was very interesting, just as good as we had hoped. The organisation, facilities and timetable were perfect. Hospitality and refreshments were very good. The welcome we received was notable and we were immediately made to feel comfortable.
This was an excellent day full of practical help and support for those difficult times of the Christian journey.
The first three words that come to mind when I think about the day: 'Stimulating, informative, encouraging.'
I found the day so peaceful and it was lovely to leave the hustle and bustle behind for a few hours.
I really enjoyed the day and came away with new insights into just how complex we human beings really are, but also with the knowledge that it's OK to be ourselves.
Really enjoyable, insightful and thought-provoking. Good, positive things to take away and work on.
The Mirfield Centre is a great asset to the area with participants travelling from far and wide for the privilege of taking part in the many and varied workshops provided. Thank you to all who made the day possible.
Come off the M62 at junction 25. Follow the signs towards Mirfield. Take the first exit at the roundabout and towards Leeds. Continue up this road until you see a ‘Starbucks’ on your right hand side. Take the filter lane and turn right at the lights - this is Stocks Bank Road. Drive over the brow of the hill and begin to drop down the other side. You will see a playground on your left hand side. The entrance to The Mirfield Centre is about 100 yards further down the road, on the right hand side.
Please note – the entrance to the Centre is marked by a brown ladder sign (to the right as you go down the hill, see picture). Please do not use the Community Retreat House entrance.
