Operation Blairmore is a special retreat to help pastors & leaders

Blairmore house was the right place for a needed time of rest – emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. With its quietness, peaceful atmosphere and environment. It’s a place of deep care and genuine concern, a place of freedom.

Anonymous - Operation Blairmore


Pastors and leaders are very welcome to attend any of our normal Healing Retreats, which are held at all our centres, and many have given testimony to how much God has done in their life as a result. However, for many, an extended time away to both rest and receive confidential prayer ministry is needed. Operation Blairmore is designed for this very purpose.

Blairmore House, the home of Ellel Scotland, is a place of healing and restoration for pastors and leaders from around the world, especially those who are struggling in difficult personal situations, or those who have become exhausted in the battle and are desperately in need of rest and recuperation.

…an extended time away to both rest and receive confidential prayer ministry


‘Operation Blairmore’ is a 10-12 day Retreat, which gives opportunity for complete rest, support, care and personal prayer ministry for those in key, full-time positions of leadership within a church, organisation or business.


These specially designed retreats are not intended merely as holiday breaks away from everyday life, but as time given to God for Him to work deeply in the lives of those who attend. Whether you are in need of personal restoration or are seeking the Lord for direction and renewed vision for your life and ministry, these specialised leaders’ retreats provide the necessary confidential, secure and loving environment.


Set in the comfort and beauty of Blairmore House, Operation Blairmore retreats are not built around a structure of formal meetings. They are led by experienced Ellel leaders and simply offer space, time and care to facilitate God’s restoration for your whole being: spirit, soul and body.


The format

Operation Blairmore is not built around a structure of formal meetings, just a morning devotional over breakfast and short teaching each evening. To ensure a peaceful environment and an optimum opportunity for quiet reflection, for plenty of rest and times of personal prayer ministry (if required), these intimate retreats are limited to around twelve guests on each occasion. 

The Cost

We subsidise the cost of Operation Blairmore Retreats and only ask for a financial contribution of £550 per person (£900 per couple).

We anticipate that your sending church, fellowship, organisation or personal sponsors would meet this cost on your behalf, enabling you and them to benefit from this unique opportunity. However, we would never want finance to become a restriction that might prevent someone attending an Operation Blairmore retreat, therefore a limited sponsorship fund is available. If needed, please request consideration for this at the time of your initial application.

The Lord touched many of the wounds of rejection, abandonment, guilt, shame and betrayal and the many masks have fallen. The many escape routes that I had developed in order to cope with my life have been cut off and I have found peace.
