Our Quiet Garden has been set up in response to the vision of The Quiet Garden Trust.  The primary vision of this Trust is to initiate and resource a network of local opportunities for silence, reflection and the appreciation of beauty; for learning about Christian life and spirituality; and for experiencing of creativity and healing in the context of Gods love.

Meetings are held from 2.30pm to 4.00pm and the garden can be found through the Green Garden Gate, in the brick wall on the right hand side, halfway along Meeting Lane, off Henley Street. 

Tea and Coffee are served throughout the afternoon and all are welcome.
