About us

Murray Grove Retreat and Renewal Center, incorporated in 1891, provides a safe and sacred space for growth, respite, work, meditation, relaxation, and celebration.  We are a Unitarian Universalist organization that focuses on caring, compassion, community and culture; a natural setting for hope, transformation, service and fun! Offering purposely simple and peaceful accommodations for up to 40 plus overnight guests, we regularly host Unitarian Universalist groups, congregational retreats (all religions), meditation groups, social action organizations, non profit organizations, school and youth groups, men's and women's groups, yoga groups, family reunions, conferences, workshops, social and community gatherings and weddings.

Open year round, we offer:  20 bedrooms with two single beds to a room, 20 acre campus, large dining room that can seat up to 70,  comfortable Fireside Living Room,  large fully equipped (1950's) kitchen, meeting spaces, labyrinth, outdoor salt water swimming pool, Ga Ga Pit (Israeli dodgeball), Screen House, athletic fields, and outdoor fire circles.

Located in the Pine Barrens of Southern NJ, we are 30 minutes from the Ocean, and 90 minutes from NYC and Philadelphia.

"Murray Grove, an historic Unitarian Universalist Retreat Center, exisits as a living memorial to the lives and the Universalist faith of John Murray and Thomas Potter.

Unitarian Universalists and friends and neighbors who seek to give the world hope and courage enliven the legacy of Universalism by promoting the union of faith, love, and action as inspired foundations of building beloved communities.

We are a residential retreat and renewal center where guests experience respite from everyday stress, and gain strength and a deepened capacity for unconditional love and radical inclusion."
