Jesus went into the hills to pray

Craig Lodge is a charity and all our work: retreats, family weeks, youth events,  pilgrimages, giving young people a life-changing experience of Community – plus keeping the house itself wind and watertight and the larder stocked –  is funded by your donations.  We are very grateful indeed.  We couldn’t do it without you!

Our Daily Bread

Our Daily Bread is a new retreat experience for secondary schools, particularly those with a prior connection to Mary’s Meals eg who sponsor a school or collect backpacks.
They are a collaboration between Craig Lodge and Mary’s Meals and are supported by Bishop John Keenan of Paisley Diocese.  The aim of these retreats is to offer spiritual nourishment to our young people who are so often hungry for God’s love in their lives.  They run from Tuesdays to Thursdays and are designed for third year students.  We are running 12 Our Daily Bread retreats this year.  To find out more or to book please contact us

Private Group Bookings 

  • We are very happy to host prayer groups and parish groups
  • We work out the cost on the basis of £120 per person for a weekend but if you want to have exclusive use of the whole house then we suggest a minimum of £2,400 (equivalent of 20 guests)
  • If your group includes families and those who would struggle with the cost – talk to us and we can see how we can help
  • The Community can help provide input for your group eg prayer ministry, leading Way of the Cross hill climb, testimonies and talks
  • Weekends book up very quickly!
