In 2018, inspired by the Quiet Garden Movement core values, the Quiet Garden project was initiated for the spiritual well being of St Barnabas and outreach in the community. The Quiet Garden was created from a neglected garden next to the Church Hall. For many years the site, albeit out of view, was filled with weeds, rubbish and an eyesore. In June 2019 the garden was completed with flower beds to establish over the years into a tranquil garden attractive to wildlife and the senses. Visitors to the Garden will be wonderfully surprised to see a secluded garden hidden away from public view and the noisy busy street next to the Church and Hall. Due to the pandemic, the Opening of the Garden set for 2 May 2020 was postponed to a date to be advised in 2021. Unfortunately in winter 2020, parts of the lawn were destroyed by perennial weeds and the Garden is currently under maintenance. We look forward to presenting the Garden when it is ready. St Barnabas Quiet Garden will be open for events or by appointment and available for private bookings. The Garden will be available to individuals or groups for therapeutic gardening and reflection in a natural environment. Amenities are available in the Hall next to the Garden. There is wheelchair access at the side of the Garden. Please see programmes of events on Facebook on the St. Barnabas website www.facebook.com/stbarnabaswg and the Quiet Garden Movement www.quietgarden.org.
