Revd Elizabeth Baxter MPhil is an Anglican priest and Executive Director of Holy Rood House and enjoys accompanying people on their therapeutic and theological journeys.

From her work in inner cities and housing estates and her experience of working at Holy Rood House for 25 years, Elizabeth draws on liberation theologies, and particularly Feminist Theologies, to give a grounding to our explorations, alongside biblical material to resonate with our stories, as we travel through this retreat together. Elizabeth’s MPhil was ‘Modelling Church as Therapeutic Community’.

Creative arts, rest and relaxation, gardens, labyrinth and library, will all be part of our retreat. There is a swimming pool a stone’s throw away, and river walks opposite the house. There will be the opportunity for massage and spiritual accompaniment.

To top it all we will crack open several bottles of wine and enjoy good home-cooked food in the relaxed and welcoming environment of Holy Rood House.
