The Bellfry serves as a place of respite and hospitality for Christian groups who seek to live out Christ’s mission to bring good news and serve the least of these. Strength for the Journey retreats are offered quarterly for those facing hard losses and challenges in their life. Amistad Mission, International Justice Mission, Intervarsity, Leighton Ford Mentoring Community, and Perinatal hospice groups find a home at the Bellfry. Shalem Institute for spiritual direction offers group spiritual direction and personal spiritual deepening workshops here. “The Bellfry comes alive in silence” writes one visitor – four day silent retreats are offered at Advent and Lent each year. Creativity weeks and weekends are offered periodically. Other groups enjoy God’s beauty and refreshing call here as space and time permits.

Place of welcome, rest, renewal and solace for weary travelers of this world to peer through a thin veil into the spaciousness of eternity.
