All Alex's adult life has been dedicated to helping people to know God for themselves. He uses great creativity to share his love of the Bible, and to discover new ways of being church. Other skills? Enjoying the great outdoors - and Dad jokes .....
Cash and careful management turns dreams into realities - so Dave’s business expertise, and his work with other charities, will make sure our books always balance. Other skills? He's an ace musician - a player AND producer!
Lizzie is a natural home-maker. Her gift for creating a place of nurturing has given this house its very special atmosphere. Her attention to detail is a massive asset - as is her artistic flair. Other skills? Lovely singer and makes great cakes!
For someone who seldom stops talking, communicating our message seems to be a good fit here! Drawing on 40 years' work in marketing, Jude will make sure everyone knows everything we can offer at Thie Dy Vea! Other skills? Hmmmmm.....
We're building a
HOUSE OF LIFE
A place of peace and purpose on our precious Island
with a welcome for everyone
Will you join us on the journey?
THIE DY VEA
TYNWALD ROAD, PEEL, ISLE OF MAN IM5 1JP
If you're a busy Mum, a key worker or a single Dad, the idea of a Quiet Time might never cross your mind!
So, how about a morning, afternoon (or perhaps an evening) just for YOU - it could involve food, crafts, music, walking, storytelling - or just doing absolutely nothing!
A Programme of Themed Quiet Times will be here soon
It's easy to reach the Island by both air or sea.
We're on a main bus route (the stop is right outside the house!) so it's simple to get to us from both the Sea Terminal or the Airport, and to go exploring by bus. But if you're bringing your car, we've got off-road parking too.
Let's imagine this together!
Take a look at the pictures ... imagine you're sitting on that comfy sofa ....sleeping on that bed for as long as you need ..... you're dreaming your own dreams, gazing out of that window, walking in the garden,
or sitting down at the table
to share breakfast with new friends.
Or are you planning to go out exploring?
You're in the perfect place to do all that

The Hard Hat Zone!
Watch us getting this beautiful space ready for you.
We will post up photos here for you to share in our journey.
Discover your spiritual self whilst creating something - there'll be chances to try activities that are new to you - from cheese-making to card-making and from pottery to photography
Thie Dy Vea welcomes people of all faiths and none - and the hospitality we offer you is tailored to your specific needs, whether you come alone, or with a group
When we're a complete and harmonious whole, we return to the state of being physically and mentally unbroken and undamaged - help to wholeness is at the heart of Thie Dy Vea
Thie Dy Vea is ideally placed within walking distance of some beautiful and significant spiritual sites - but the whole Island is filled with routes back into our Celtic heritage
Solitude is the state of being alone, without being lonely. It's a positive and constructive state of engagement with oneself - and Thie Dy Vea will offer spaces to seek that solitude
All life in Thie Dy Vea is sustained by a daily cycle of prayer led by members of the Community - our visitors are welcome to join in as much - or as little - as they wish.
