Thank you for all of your kindness and thoughtfulness during our stay in the Lodge House.
The presence of Jesus is so tangible in this place. When we prayed for you this afternoon I saw a picture in my spirit of you pulling in a fishing net behind you that was exponentially bigger than is humanly possible. So in the beautiful name of Jesus, we bless you with nets that are full of souls as the Lord uses you to bless people. Every blessing, Andrea, July 2020
Excellent, warm and welcoming. I felt free to use all the facilities and rooms. The food was delicious and plentiful. The outside space was so close to the Clyde Valley walkway and was of benefit to me. The stillness and calm was wonderful. It is great to get out of the city and be in the countryside.

'Braehead House is truly a 'thin place'. The sense of peace begins as you drive down the driveway. A warm welcome is received from Elizabeth and the volunteers. The garden in beautiful - a fabulous place just to "Be still and know that I am God". It is always a blessing to be here. I go away rested, restored and re-invigorated - and already looking forward to my next visit!

"Wanted to send a quick note to say thank you for the retreat I was on - it was a wonderfully relaxing time in a peaceful atmosphere. Our short times of worship and reflection were just perfect, and the space for fellowship really made the whole time exactly what I needed. I will definitely be recommending this to others and when I eventually get ordained, would look to spend more retreat time here too. "

A regular (annual) spiritual retreat for 48 hours is now a part of my healthly spiritual rythms. Last year was the first time I had been on one and was the best thing
I had done spiritually for a long time. Ricky -2018
