Ffald y Brenin is a Christian retreat centre and house of prayer located in the breathtaking Preseli hills of West Wales.
Welcome to the Sheepfold
Ffald y Brenin means “sheepfold of the king” in Welsh. It’s a fitting name for a place that was founded to offer shelter and rest from life’s frantic demands.
Over the years, tens of thousands of people have found their way to this remote place nestled in the Gwaun Valley in West Wales. Many have encountered the presence of the Lord during their stay. We continue to be moved by how God meets people right where they’re at in such powerful, intimate, and personal ways.
In addition to being a retreat centre, Ffald y Brenin is also a place of prayer, and our team has structured our days around a rhythm of daily prayer. >>Get coronavirus information here.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
Two complementary threads are woven into the fabric of Ffald y Brenin. The first thread is one of rest, refreshment, restoration, and healing. It’s a breathing in of God’s presence. “Be still and know that I am God.”
The second thread is one of vision, intercession, compassion, faith, blessing, revival, and global reach. It’s a breathing out of God’s presence. The Holy Spirit turns our gaze and our care toward our neighbour as we carry God’s presence out to the world.
Friend, this rhythm is God’s invitation to you. Our prayer is that you will experience the sweetness of power of God’s presence in the quiet place, and then be energized and equipped to intercede for, serve, and love your neighbour.
What guests are saying
“Fantastic scenery, great walks, cozy lounge and day rooms, comfortable bedrooms. Such an anointing of God in this centre.”
“A beautiful place to be able to stop and hear more clearly what God is saying. The rhythm of prayer is beautiful, and it allows a deeper soaking of His word. We had beautiful prayer ministry ourselves, and saw others receive the same. We will be back!”
“Quiet, reflective space in a busy world, always appreciated.“

Our first few weeks working here at Ffald y Brenin were dramatic…two major weather systems took out the phones and internet and COVID took hold, causing the centre to close a month after our arrival. But very soon…
