churches together in Leicestershire-furthering ecumenical cooperation

Quiet Gardens 2019

Posted by Administrator

Posted on 11:23, Sunday, April 7


Following the vision of the Quiet Garden Trust, which began in 1992, and has since spread worldwide, we aim in Leicestershire to offer an experience of spiritual renewal under the abundance of Gods love, and within the beauty of a garden, to those of any faith or none.

Silence is the essence of a Quiet Garden Day. You will be gently guided into periods of silence by a leader who will give some ideas to help personal reflection. You can use the ideas as you will, simply walking, sitting or sleeping, as you choose - painting or writing.

Each Day begins at 10 am and ends at 4 pm. We conclude each Day with a short act of Christian worship.
