The Mirfield Centre represents the public programmes of the Community. From retreats to school visits, sabbaticals to artists-in-residence and day events to residential conferences, we offer something for all needs, tastes and interests.
People who stay at the Mirfield Monastery, home of the Community of the Resurrection, come for a variety of different reasons. These can be individually arranged retreats, guided retreats led by a member of the Community or the College, week long special courses, or clergy retreats.
We aim to renew this place of hospitality, welcome and learning as a resource for Church and society in a turbulent and changing world.
Our aim is to ensure that all who come can share in our life and leave refreshed and renewed through their experience.

Since 1991 we have invited Christians in West Yorkshire to join us in an Advent preparation for Christmas. The service, originally taken from ‘The Promise of His Glory’, is based on the ‘Great Os’. These are ancient antiphons sung at the beginning and end of the Magnificat from 17th until 23rd December and are best […]
Br Jacob’s handmade Advent candle sets are still available to order from the Mirfield Bookshop. Made using the stubs from candles in the Community’s church or given by our friends, the sets have carved wooden bases made by our volunteers from fallen wood in the grounds. The result is a unique and attractive, recycled Advent candle set. […]
Post All Saints’ Day is an apposite time to reflect on this latest important event in the life of CR, and of our newest brother Fabian (né Shaun-Michael) Trevithick. It is not insignificant that his clothing into the novitiate should have taken place during the first evensong for St Luke’s day (17th October). Luke, as […]
We welcome you to come to CR and to share in our life. Some come regularly to talk with a brother, others spend a day or two experiencing this very different environment. Individuals and groups come on retreat and pilgrimage, share in the teaching and courses we offer and join us in worship and meals.
