The Kairos Centre is a retreat and conference centre and is available for day visits and overnight stays.
The centre is an urban oasis in south-west London situated within acres of landscaped gardens and overlooking the historic Richmond Park.
Our tranquil setting of peaceful, secluded gardens provides place to pray, space to think and time to meet.
We offer a programme of organised retreats and events along with the opportunities for spiritual direction and personal quiet days.
We wish to warmly invite everyone to share times of prayer and reflection with us. Kairos is keen to be a resource for the local community where, together, we can respond to the Lord’s invitation to “come and rest a while.”
An ancient Greek word meaning the “right or opportune moment.” It is used to define a specific time that exists in between regular time (“Chronos”); a moment of undetermined period of time in which something unique and special happens. A watershed moment that affects every aspect, forever more, of the person’s life, and is measured with the nature of time that is defined by quality rather than quantity.
