Berget is a Christian community. We seek to promote spiritual deepening and the unity of the Church. The members of the community come from several different churches and denominations as do our retreat and course leaders.
Since its founding in 1962, Berget has been a meeting place offering recreation, knowledge and spiritual strength and renewal to everyone who visits. Our calling is the visible unity, friendship and fellowship within the Church as well as spiritual deepening.
With a wide ecumenical aspiration, we serve within the Church of Sweden (Lutheran) offering retreats, Christian meditation, courses, worship services, community and fellowship.
Berget consists of two houses; the House of St David – focusing on retreats, silence, rest, worship services and bible meditations. The House of Meditation strives to include the whole person; body, soul and mind, giving courses in contemplative meditation, as well as spiritual guidance, ethics and our cultural origins/roots.
We celebrate the Holy Eucharist every morning and pray the liturgy of the hours throughout the rest of the day.
Friends of Berget
Since many years there has been a possibility to support the community life on Berget by becoming a Friend of Berget. The Friends support through prayer, giving and practical work. Twice a year (normally in May and August) we welcome our Friends to join us for practical work, prayer and fellowship.
Berget runs on quite a limited budget and relies on the generosity of many Friends of Berget to keep the place open, hospitable and in one piece. We try to keep our costs down so that as many people as possible can come on retreat. All donations are a help to us to fulfill our calling to serve the body of Christ in Sweden and neighboring countries.
