about the centre

The Tŷ Croeso Centre is beautifully situated in spacious grounds, bordered by woodland, rivers and hills. The name is taken from the Welsh language; “Tŷ” meaning “House” and “Croeso” meaning “Welcome”, i.e. The “House of Welcome”. The Abbey itself is built on the site of a 12th century Cistercian Monastery and has been home to the Sisters of St. Joseph since 1946. The surrounding countryside is ideal for walking, rambling and cycling. It provides as ideal oasis for reflection and prayer and the opportunity to enhance and rebuild lives. The many gardens, woodland walks and walled gardens are an invitation to experience God’s creation and to become more aware of our responsibilities to care for the earth.

our aims

Tŷ Croeso is to be an oasis where people feel welcomed and valued. It is a place where we will develop and offer programmes that will help enhance the quality of life in an ever-changing world. We will provide opportunities for people to take time for themselves – to feel renewed and enriched and to discover deeper meaning and direction in their lives. We want it to be a centre where all can experience God’s love though relationships and through creation – discovering and valuing their gifts and seeking to be healers in a divided world.
