Come and See
St Antony’s Priory, in Durham, is a Christian spirituality centre operated by the Society of the Sacred Mission, an Anglican Religious Order originally established towards the end of the 19th Century.
Today the Priory offers spiritual accompaniment and training for spiritual directors, hospitality for groups and individuals, and a varying programme of courses and quiet days.
There is a full timetable of weekday and Sunday services in the chapel (which members of the public are also very welcome to attend). Our worship is in the catholic tradition of the Church of England, and includes significant periods of silent prayer.
Overnight accommodation is available in the Cottage guesthouse, which has four self-catering rooms available for people wishing to spend a few days on retreat.
Latest News from St Antony's Priory
We are excited to be working towards the establishment of a new Institute for Anglican Religious Life, here at St Antony’s in Durham. Amongst other things, this will involve working with Anglican religious communities to ensure the preservation of their legacy, as well as exploring how the wisdom of the past might inform future expressions of religious life.
As part of this work, we have initited a series of speaker events, more details of which can be found here.
As ever, all are welcome to join the Priory community for services in the Chapel. See here for more information about service times. Please note that if attending services outside of normal opening times (e.g. on a Sunday or in the evening) it will be necessary to access the Chapel via the outside steps.
