Still Waters Retreat

“He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul.” (Psalm 23)

In today’s fast-paced society, finding time to sit and reflect on life, hear from God and to enjoy the abundance of His creation is becoming more and more difficult. With each increasing pressure, the time we spend with God, as well as just time for ourselves, is diminished.  Yet, our human spirits yearn for these times of restoration; time to rest, time to pray, time to enjoy God’s Word, time to just ‘be’.

A Still Waters Retreat is the perfect antidote to life’s constant demands. There is no programme of events or heavy teaching schedule, only a gentle devotional over breakfast times and some sharing by the fireside each evening in the comfort of our drawing room. The rest of the day is free for you to focus on God, to listen to His voice and to enjoy some relaxing time to yourself. Enjoy beautiful Blairmore House and its restful surroundings at your leisure.

What better location for such an event than in the amazing beauty of and peace of Blairmore House?  With spacious and luxurious accommodation, nestled in a large woodland estate, surrounded by the stunning vista of the highlands of Scotland, Blairmore offers comfort, seclusion and creative inspiration.

Our well equipped creativity room is open during your stay, for you to enjoy some personal time of creative expression if you wish.  With an abundance of craft and art material at your disposal, you can easily while away hours of personal time, allowing God to speak through your expression, as well as enjoying yourself.

Our prayer is that Still Waters will offer you the spiritual and physical nurture you need to continue on in life, with a renewed vision and heart for God’s purposes in your life. Who knows what God can do in you when you dedicate quality time to being with Him!

We expect these to be popular events and would encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.

Covid-19 Notice

We are very happy to be able to welcome guests to our centres again following the lifting of restrictions in the UK. Ellel Ministries falls within a number of sectors including hospitality, retail and a registered place of worship. All of these sectors are now able to function within government guidelines. We are therefore working very hard to ensure the safety of all of our guests, team and volunteers and there are some key changes that are important to note.

We will have enhanced cleaning and safety procedures in place and will keep guest rooms and public areas such as corridors and receptions at the highest standard of cleanliness throughout your stay. Please note that Scotland still requires masking in public areas and while singing. 

Before coming, please ensure you follow local guidelines.  If you are in an area with travel restrictions in place, please contact us before booking. Please note that when travelling internationally, you must adhere to all UK government guidelines.  Be aware that you cannot quarantine at Blairmore.

Accommodation will be allocated in line with the current Government regulations, which does allow for shared accommodation.   Therefore, our prices reflect this change and are now back to our normal policy of only being able to offer shared accommodation. For this reason, we ask that you take a lateral flow test before traveling to Blairmore.

We look forward to welcoming you soon.
