Latest News from St Antony's Priory
In line with current regulations, the Priory is currently closed to the public. Following the government’s recently announced plan for the lifting of lockdown restrictions, we hope to be able to begin partial reopening after Easter. This is likely to include retreat accommodation in the cottage and meetings for spiritual direction. Further updates will be announced as we continue to monitor the situation.
The Priory underwent extensive refurbishment works during 2019 – have a look at our Facebook page to see the photos. We are now developing a new programme of courses and workshops, as well as establishing a residential community.

Who We Are & What We Do
St Antony’s Priory, in Durham, is both a residential praying community and a Christian spirituality centre, run by the Society of the Sacred Mission, an Anglican Religious Order originally established towards the end of the 19th Century.
Today the Priory offers spiritual accompaniment and training for spiritual directors, hospitality for groups and individuals, and a varying programme of courses and quiet days.
The residential community provides an opportunity for people, who may be wondering where God might be calling them next, to spend up to a year immersed in the discipline and structure of a religious community.
Overnight accommodation is available in the Cottage guesthouse, which has four self-catering rooms available for people wishing to spend a few days on retreat.
