Praying around the Churchyard

Jesus said “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest”. (Mark 6:31)

As we move into the better weather it is a good time to take advantage of our lovely Churchyard; to spend time enjoying the surroundings of the Church and to give God the chance to speak to us.


With some expert advice from Brian and Audrey Hooper on what to find in the Churchyard I have prepared a leaflet.  There may be things that as you follow path indicated in the leaflet, that you have never noticed before. Enjoy exploring and as you go you may wish to repeat to yourself or say aloud ”‘O Lord, our Sovereign, how majestic is your name in all the earth! You have set your glory above the heavens.” (Psalm 8:1)


Lewis Simmons has made a rack, which is fixed to the wall to the right of the main door into the Church and this is where the leaflets can be found.

The walk also gives an opportunity to appreciate how beautifully David Bainbridge and his team keep the Churchyard.

Please point the leaflets out to visitors to our Churchyard and make use of them yourself.
