Working Holiday

4th November to 10th November 2018

Complimentary Break - FULL BOARD

This break is perfect for those who are physically fit. It involves working for 7 - 8 hours daily

Arrive on Sunday at 4pm with supper will be at 6pm. There will be a compulsory induction training for all at 7.30pm.

The break will finish on Friday after breakfast.

Although this break is complimentary, you may like to also make a contribution towards your stay. The gardeners always welcome bags of compost, or you might like to contribute financially towards one of our chapel, furnishings or garden funds.


We believe that God requires us at Woodlands House of Prayer (Brunel Manor) to be good stewards of the beautiful buildings and surrounding 12- acre estate. So it is during the Brunel Working Holidays that we invite guests to join the Brunel Team for a week of hard work, great camaraderie and fellowship. Join the Volunteer Community for daily devotions and worship. We will share with the resident community in communion on Wednesday.


These breaks support every day tasks around the building and estate in these areas:

  • Gardening and estate work
  • Housekeeping 
  • Maintenance 
  • Haberdashery 
  • Furniture restoration

When booking please let us know what team you are able to serve on - listed above. Please note that there is a limit both to the number of people who we can effectively manage during these breaks and to the variety and extent of tasks which can be undertaken. We do not want guests to come and feel that they have wasted a few days because their talents were not needed and therefore whilst we try and match guests to the available tasks there may be occasions when we will have to decline people booking on the Working Holiday. We apologise for any disappointment which that might cause.
