Garden Description:

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 unusable.

In 2018, inspired by the Quiet Garden Movement core values, the Quiet Garden was created for the spiritual well being of St Barnabas and for outreach in the community.   In June 2019 the Quiet 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 surprised to see a secluded garden hidden away from public view and the noisy street next to the Church and Hall.  Donated memorial benches provide ample seating for visitors to rest, contemplate and reflect in natural surroundings.    

Visitors are welcome to visit the Quiet Garden by invitation or by private appointment. 

Programmes of events publicised on the QG Movement website.

The incumbent vicar Fr William Obedoza is happy to pray with any visitor by private appointment.

On Open days, members of the Host team are available to meet guests and chat over coffee.

The Garden is available for hire to groups/individuals for therapeutic gardening and mindfulness meetings in a natural environment. Amenities are available in the Hall next to the Garden.

Revenue from admission fees or donations will be used for running costs of the garden and for charitable causes
