Poiema Community


“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

The Poiema Community & Retreat House

Welcome to the Poiema Community

Poiema is a Christian Community offering a welcoming and hospitable environment within beautiful surroundings, holding space for visitors to encounter God, as they take time away from the demands of daily life to reflect and pray.  We are located in the village of Loweswater, in the heart of the Lake District World Heritage Site.

If you’re interested in our pattern of prayer, day and residential retreats, or quiet days, you can find out more information here.
