The former stables at Christian’s Acre in Southern Sweden, which were built in 1831, have become a Guest House and the pigsty has been turned into the Chapel of the Holy Cross.
The chapel, where the Divine Office is said regularly, was blessed on 1st June 2006 by John, Bishop of Fulham. It is linked with the parish of All Saints Notting Hill in the Diocese of London, where Sr Gerd holds permission to officiate and where she shares in ministry with Fr. John Brownsell SSC, its vicar.
We want to develop contacts
between the Church of England
and Christians in Sweden
and we want to offer
a place “just to be” ...
a place for prayer and reflection ...
a place for study, rest and recreation ...
Four twin bedrooms in the Guest House provide for eight people to sleep here. Two bedrooms on the ground floor and a large bathroom are easily accessible for the disabled.
More beds can be booked at the Community College five minutes walk away.
The kitchen is fully equipped so people can get their own breakfast or be self-catering.
Alternatively, full board can be provided.
On the first floor in the main building you will find
the Oratory of Our Lady and All Saints which can be used for private prayer or by small groups.
A small library of theological and spiritual literature with the emphasis on the Church of England and the Church of Sweden is being developed.
Conference facilities are available for about 20 people
