Celebrate Christmas with us at Hilfield Friary. Become part of our family as we prepare to welcome the Christ Child. For us Christmas starts on Christmas Eve when we decorate the Chapels and Refectory. Join us for Midnight Mass and afterwards for mince pies and mulled punch and celebrations on Christmas Day. Santa may even make an appearance!
The suggested minimum donation for Christmas at Hilfield is £210 which includes meals and accommodation. We are willing to accept less if this figure is not possible for you. Please contact Suzi who will be happy to help you with your booking in confidence. We ask people to Gift Aid their donation wherever possible.
During this time you will be staying in Bernard, Leo or Juniper House, named after the early Companions of St Francis. Your accommodation is quiet and comfortable, warm and well-appointed.
Meals will be eaten together and participants are invited to help with both the preparation and washing up particularly at this busy time.
During Christmas you are welcome to share in the regular Services in the Community Chapel – although there is no requirement for you to do so.
