'Bass Hill Hermitage' is located on 16 acres. It is on a quiet
no-thru road, providing a safe place to walk, with views across farm land and Western Port Bay. The Hermitage looks out onto bushland, paddocks and Bass Hill. There is lots of birdlife and we regularly see kangaroos grazing in nearby paddocks. The night sky is filled with stars and owls can be heard calling to each other.

The chapel is located opposite 'The Hermitage'. It is a rendered straw-bale building. It has a lovely peaceful atmosphere, conducive to prayer and meditation. Retreatants are welcome to use the chapel at any time, either for personal prayer or to join with us for a short prayer time. (usually a reading/psalm, music/song)
The chapel may also used for prayer and reflection days for non-residential small groups during the year.
