A Call for Support: Ensuring the Future of Vaughan Park

Since 1963, when the Anglican Church was gifted this extraordinary site by the Vaughan family, Vaughan Park has been a sanctuary of transformation and peace. Generations of guests and staff have been profoundly touched by the legacy of Thomas Vaughan's generosity. Each year, Vaughan Park welcomes approximately 8,000 guests, each seeking solace, reflection, and spiritual nourishment. Whether they come for retreats, conferences, or personal reflection, all leave with a deep sense of peace and renewal.

Despite the support we receive for our services, these funds are insufficient for all our needs. We face challenges in expanding our facilities, maintaining our existing infrastructure, and enhancing our spiritual offerings. The demand for our retreats and programmes continues to grow, yet without additional support, we are constrained in our ability to meet these needs effectively.

We envision Vaughan Park as not just a Retreat & Conference Center, but a vibrant hub where individuals can deepen their spiritual journey, connect with nature, and find community. To realise this vision, we need your help.

Your support will enable us to:

Expand Facilities: Enhance our accommodation and conference facilities to accommodate more guests and provide a comfortable retreat experience.

Maintain Infrastructure: Ensure the upkeep of our buildings, grounds, and amenities to create a welcoming and nurturing environment.

Enhance Programmes: Develop new spiritual programmes that cater to the diverse needs of our guests and foster personal growth and spiritual renewal.

Your contribution, whether big or small, will make a significant difference in ensuring Vaughan Park continues to be a place of solace and spiritual growth for generations to come. Together, we can preserve and enhance this invaluable resource.

Join us in supporting Vaughan Park. Together, let us continue to nurture transformation, peace, and spiritual renewal. Thank you for your generosity and commitment to our shared mission.
