Welcome to this beautiful and sacred place.

For those who return to Vaughan Park year after year, thank you for your continued friendship. For those of you who will come here for the first time in 2019, we are looking forward to warmly welcoming you into the Vaughan Park community.

Vaughan Park is a place of hospitality, conversation, healing and spiritual encounter and offers an oasis of peace to all people. At its heart is the Ruatara Chapel where we offer rhythms of daily prayer and contemplation.

We are delighted to introduce our exciting and diverse programme of Retreats and workshops for 2019 which we hope will support and inspire your journey of discovery, transformation, faith, creativity, grief, wellness or curiosity.

Come and see how this space and place will endear itself to you.  Relax, share, learn, enjoy and find purpose in all the ways you are seeking to enrich your life.
