Brunel Manor (Woodlands House of Prayer)

Woodlands House of Prayer is the charity that has been running Brunel Manor Christian Holiday and Conference Centre in Torquay for nearly sixty years.

An update from the Brunel Manor team March 2021:

Sadly the prolonged lockdowns due to the covid pandemic have had a massive financial impact, and so the trustees have had to take the decision to sell Brunel Manor. We expect to be bidding a fond farewell to our third home in the charity’s history later this spring, and are in the process of looking for a new site from which to re-envision and re-grow our ministry as we emerge from the covid restrictions. Woodlands House of Prayer started in London during the blitz, moved to Eastbourne at the end of WWII, and then relocated to Torquay in the early 1960s, so although we are sad to say goodbye to Brunel Manor, we know we must follow where God leads us for the future.


We long for people to have the opportunity to ‘be revived’ in faith and fellowship with others, through the wonder of God’s creation, and we very much hope that we will soon be able to invite guests to join us again.

In the ‘gap’ between having a physical property A Rocha UK have kindly agreed to keep us on as Partners in Action, and we hope to use this time to build our online resources and community, so watch this space to see what God will grow in it!
