It’s the official opening of the Trinity Garden; a community and quiet garden for everyone to enjoy, and everyone is invited.

Join us on Sunday 15th October from 2.30pm for the official opening events. Acting Archdeacon Chris Hare will cut the ribbon at 3.30pm, and at 4pm there will be a cream tea.

There will be children’s activities throughout the afternoon. You can enter the ‘carve a vegetable’ competition (make sure you carve it and bring it with you on the day) and from 9-15 October you can complete our scarecrow trail of scarecrows inspired by Bible characters. Click here for the trail information.

The garden has been many years in the making, and is an inspiring place for all, regardless of whether you have a Christian faith or not. Outside our Coffee Lounge cafe there is a patio area with seating, which leads on to a lawn where we have space for outdoor events. Children love running around and playing with the outdoor toys and equipment. At the other end of the space, there is a Quiet Garden; a therapeutic space with secluded seating. There are four distinct areas: sensory, dry, fruitfulness and natural. The key Bible verse throughout the planning has been ‘Come with me to a quiet space by yourselves and get some rest’ from Mark 6 verse 31.

Our vision is that the space will be used not just by Church members, but by community groups and individuals as a resource for quiet contemplation, and a space for exploring outdoors. If you’d like to find out whether your group could use the space please contact the Church Office on 01275 853227.
