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
