The Briery is a place of spiritual renewal, where those who come can find God in an atmosphere of love, prayer, healing and peace. Where all are valued, encouraged to discover their gifts and challenged to use them in the service of others. Where the poor, the suffering and the lonely can experience the power of the cross and Resurrection in Christ.

We wish to appoint a Manager for The Briery Retreat Centre typically working 3 days per week. This will be on a fixed term contract for 3 years after which it will be reviewed.
