Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Evelyn Underhill was a great authority on prayer. Her books ‘Mysticism’ and ‘Worship’ are classics, still enjoyed today.

She led many retreats at the Chelmsford Diocesan Retreat House at Pleshey @RetreatPleshey, which continues a thriving place of prayer used by many.
