  • About

    The Kairos Retreat Centre is an urban oasis in south-west London situated within three acres of landscaped gardens and overlooking the historic Richmond Park. Our tranquil setting of peaceful, secluded gardens provides space to pray, space to think and space to meet.

    We offer a programme of organised retreats and events which can be downloaded here or we can post a brochure and booking form to you.

    We wish to warmly invite you to share times of prayer and reflection with us. Kairos is keen to be a resource where, together, we can respond to the Lord's invitation to "come and rest a while." We are able to offer Spiritual Direction and we have both male and female spiritual directors available.

    We welcome all who need to find a place of quiet, peace, harmony and hospitality. A place to pray, a place to think, a place to meet. It exists for the development of the individual and community, and is open to all.

    The Kairos Centre is owned and administered by the Catholic Congregation and charity,
    The Poor Servants of the Mother of God.

    The Congregation was founded in 1869 by Frances Taylor. Frances took the name Mother Magdalen and the first Sisters responded to the needs of the time, working with the most vulnerable, especially women and children, and recognising the dignity and worth of each person.

    During the past century the work has changed and the Sisters have responded to new situations which have arisen but their work is still carried out in the same spirit and according to the same values espoused by the Foundress.

    We welcome individuals and organisations and work in collaboration with members of other Christian denominations as well as other faith groups.
