Testimonials

Paul Banderet - Carry the Banner Music

“I thought it would be an ideal place to spend some time on my own and with God to pray and prepare for what I need to be to doing this year. I had a great stay atThe Old Mill Centre! A beautiful, peaceful and relaxing location for a truly inspirational weekend retreat - both personally and for my music - and I wrote a song while I was there.”

Hazel Bottomley - Ladies’ Group Retreat, West Lane Baptist, Haworth, West Yorkshire

"We had a lovely welcome at church and the weather has been wonderful. We've talked about lots of important women and had time of quiet, music, prayer and laughter. The house was super and very comfortable given the size of the group. We all like to sit and eat together and could fit comfortably in the lounge, the fire was lit and was super on Saturday with the first real frost of the autumn."

"We had a really memorable weekend at Skeeby, the theme was Home and we've made a new banner for church with our creative output from the weekend. We worshipped at St Agatha's and Lesley [the local vicar] was preaching and changed her sermon to fit, which was a lovely touch."

Management Retreat, Rhema Theatre Company - Bringing the Bible to life

“The best retreat place yet.  There was a good amount of space to be together, eat together and seek God.  The location is superb.  We had good walks, meals, brainstorming and planning sessions, games and great fellowship.  And we moved forwards as a ministry.” [Becky Peacock, Artistic Director and joint founder.]  See www.rhematheatre.org   http://www.rhematheatre.org

“The Old Mill Centre was the perfect place for us to spend some extended time as a management team, praying, worshipping, and seeking God’s direction together.  We enjoyed being able to sit around the large family dining table, breaking bread together and the opportunity that offered for relationship building.  We went into Richmond on one of our evenings there and enjoyed an Indian dinner and on one of the afternoons we got ourselves wrapped up to take a walk alongside the river.  A beautiful setting for reflection and fun - one of the team even climbed a large tree!  The time and space we were blessed to share there over one weekend bore much fruit, both in the relationship bonding and in releasing us to have time to dream big dreams for the future ministry of Rhema.  I enjoyed it so much there, I booked to take my home fellowship group along recently and we had an amazing weekend too.  I highly recommend this property to all who need somewhere big enough for a dozen or so people to spend some quality time together.” [Liz Banks – Chair of Trustees, 2009-2012]

House Church Group Retreat, Galtres Church, York.
