Please put the dates in your diaries, tell your friends about us, and if you have never visited us before do please come along and enjoy a time of reflection on what the various speakers have to tell us on the given subject, which is always most interesting and very varied, and you will be made very welcome.

As usual, we shall be supporting Water Aid at each of our meetings, and our now well-known blue watering-can will be available for your contributions.

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.
