The Wellspring is a Christian retreat and events centre located on the southern edge of the Malvern Hills "Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty", near the market town of Ledbury in Herefordshire.

Welcome to The Wellspring

well·​spring, ˈwel-ˌspriŋ  (noun) : a source of continual or abundant supply

At The Wellspring, our vision is of a place where people might encounter God, be equipped to know and journey with Him more closely and engage the world around them with His love, grace, and life-giving message.

The Cottage is a private, self-catering, retreat space for overnight use by up to three guests, or daytime/evening use for up to five.

We organise and host a programme of Events throughout the year covering a range of activities, including spiritual retreats and quiet days, prayer and worship gatherings, creative arts and crafts, teaching and training, plus other special events.

We also offer Venue Hire to churches and other Christian groups looking to hold their own events and activities within the tranquil surroundings of the Herefordshire countryside.

So, whatever your plans, whether you're attending one of our events in the company of friends, hiring one or more of our spaces, or just looking for some peace and quiet in the midst of all the noise, we say to your soul...

Welcome to The Wellspring!
