Garden Description:

The Quiet Garden was created out of a derelict site next to the Church Hall. For many years the site, albeit out of view, was  an eyesore filled with weeds and rubbish.

In 2018 the Church  agreed to transform  the site  into a proper  garden for local people to enjoy.    Inspired by the Quiet Garden Movement  core values,  it was decided  that a Quiet Garden should be created for outreach and  spiritual well being  purposes. In May 2019, work began clearing the thick undergrowth of weeds, landscaping, returfing and planting plants attractive to wildlife.

Visitors to the Garden will be surprised to see a secluded tranquil garden hidden away from public view and the noisy busy street next to the Church and Hall.   Donated memorial benches strategically placed  around the  garden will provide ample seating for visitors to rest, contemplate and reflect in natural surroundings.

The incumbent  vicar is  happy  to pray with any visitor by private appointment. On open days, trained listeners and the team are available to chat to visitors.

The Garden is available  for hire to organisations/individuals for therapeutic gardening and groups wishing to hold 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
