Today, the vision of Medina Valley Centre remains very much as it was back when the Centre was first built, in the early 1960’s. As it was in the beginning, our desire is to demonstrate God’s love to all who visit. Motivated by faith in a God who showed his love for us by sending Jesus to redeem us, our core aim remains unchanged as we to seek to love and value all through what we do and say. This is worked out by our concern for the environment, the quality and excellence of our courses and above all our care and support for our guests. Central to this is our pastoral care hosting team, who are responsible for the pre-breakfast, 5 minute “thought” and who engage with our visitors to make their stay with us truly memorable.
