Refugium Smidstrup Strand

To meet with others with the opportunity to develop together. To retreat and be able to immerse yourself in thoughts or texts for a while. Both wishes can be met at the St Lukas Foundation's Refugium Smidstrup Strand.

The Refugium is an intimate conference and retreat centre with room for both presence, stays with content, immersion and silence. The unique location with direct access to the beach and sea in Smidstrup on the north coast of Sealand and the neighbouring green nature provides a unique opportunity to involve the surroundings and the environment in your event. 

Here guests meet in the middle of nature overlooking the sea, being inspired, engaged, taught and entertained. The independent building Udsigten (The View), furnished as both as a classroom and as a cosy get-together space, offers panoramic sea and beach views.

The guests have the opportunity to be both themselves and to retreat, relax and have the courage to turn their thoughts inward or to share life and faith stories.

All our guests emphasise the Refugium’s unique light, nature, location down to the beach, and the possibility of promenades on the extensive nature area or along the sea.

It is possible to rent the whole centre for courses, conferences and retreats, incl — the church, used for small services, meditations, silent events, music etc.
