COVID-19 Virus:
Due to the escalating Covid-19 outbreak and in light of the Government’s response, the Mercy Spirituality Centre is now closed (23rd of March 2020) and will remain closed for the month of April. All programmes are suspended until the end of May.

We will still be checking the emails and so if you need to, you will be able to contact us.


Once the situation in the country has improved, we will reassess the situation.


We really wish you well for the coming few weeks. 


We pray for all who have been affected by Covid-19 and hope that they will find healing and support.

At this stage, we are closing the facilities until the 31st of May, 2020.  We will keep you up to date if there are any changes.


Please note:
All programmes currently cancelled/postponed  - will be looked at whether we can reschedule them at a later date in the year or in 2021 - when the situation settles down enough for us to make plans again, we will.
