History and About the Venue

The stone building which served as the ballroom for the Guest House (it had been the winery in earlier days) became the Chapel, and a new wing was erected on the site of the ruins of the old mansion to make the whole into a House of Studies for the young Brothers undertaking their second year of teacher-training.   During the 1980’s, the number of young people opting to join the religious congregation decreased, and approaches to formation programs changed.  Smaller groups were housed in locations closer to Universities and other tertiary institutions.  Parallel to this trend among religious congregations in the 1980’s, there was an increasing call for formation programs for lay people within the Catholic Church, both for younger people of senior school age, and for adults.

The Church utilised many of the large centres built in the 1950’s and 1960’s to meet this need, and this has been the situation at Winbourne.

The refurbishment and upgrading of facilities was a response to help meet this continuing and expanding need.  An extensive redevelopment began in 1993.  In successive stages came the new community residence, dining room and kitchen complex, three cottages to accommodate adult groups, a refurbishment of the Retreat building and Chapel, a Reception building and in 1997, the restoration and renovation of the Stables to its structure and appearance as originally constructed in 1882. Major refurbishment and upgrade of facilities and accommodation in 2018 has given Winbourne an exciting new impetus.
