Guidelines for faith groups using Kelston Roundhill and Roundhill Barn

Roundhill Barn is a non-demonational space where people of all faiths or of none, as well as any gender race or orientation are welcome.

Roundhill Barn is a non-denominational space ideally suited to retreats, reflection and spiritual refreshment.

One way or another Kelston Roundhill has always been and will always be a sacred spot. We’re not aware of any records surviving from Celtic or Roman times, but in recent years we’ve welcomed CofE groups for awaydays and evensong, Quaker days of quiet, school Ascension Day assemblies, Buddhist monks and Rastafari.

They come either informally as walkers on the hill, or by invitation and booking in advance for awaydays, worship and memorial events in the Old Barn. Pilgrims are always welcome. And it’s a perfect location for private reflection of all sorts.

But we must first remind visitors to seek permission in advance for any proposed group event. That isn’t simply as a matter of courtesy; bear in mind this is a working farm on private land.

Second: we’re very open to hosting multi-faith and interfaith events, and welcome people of any faith or none. But Roundhill Barn has a certain ethos with which fundamentalism, evangelism or missionary zeal are not compatible. If you practise intolerance or discrimination of any sort – including on the basis of gender, faith, ethnicity or sexual orientation – please find a different venue.

And – as for each and every visitor – leave no trace.
