Marygate offers a "Ministry of Welcome", whereby we provide a safe, welcoming Christian environment for people who visit Holy Island to stay for religious, cultural or educational reasons. Marygate provides space for people to listen and to talk to each other and to God. It is a place to encounter creation and holiness, in nature through everyday life.
We are located on the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, just off the UK's Northumberland coast.
We have, two houses one the large Marygate House which is for groups and the other Cambridge House is for individuals and quiet/silence. We also take bookings look after the islands reading room.
Coastguard Officers all over the UK have attended Remembrance Services and Parades today, we in particular remember the thousands of Coastguards who have lost t...heir lives in conflicts.
'They gave their today for our tomorrow.'
