Full time

St Luke’s Retreat Centre is a spiritual retreat centre that caters to groups and individuals that enjoy the quiet setting in the middle of Port Elizabeth for retreats, workshops, conferences, youth retreats and other activities. We are currently not looking to fill any positions full-time.


We are currently looking for a volunteer who is willing to serve in our library. Opening hours of the library can be adjusted according to your availability. We are also in the process of moving our catalogue online and need some help with the administration work. 

If you are interested in helping out, please email us on


Are you interested in serving the Lord within the church and would like to spend some time in the Retreat Centre environment to learn more about this ministry. An Internship is an ideal way of taking some time to see whether this ministry could be where God is calling you to be.

Seasonal Full time

On occasion we are booking for longer term stays of groups (up to 3 months) and require extra help in housekeeping and catering. We will advise here ahead of time of this particular need.

Part time

If you are looking to get involved for just a few hours per week, then a part time position could be ideal for you. We will update the webpage with opportunities as they arise. 

Casual - On call

Casual workers (up to 24 hours per month) are needed from time to time to help with bookings that exceed our average amount of guests or if bookings are too close together for our staff to handle the turnover of rooms.
