Oasis of Calm...

The Meditation Garden at Watton-at-Stone Methodist Church is proving to be a real 'Oasis of Calm' for the local community to use for reflection and private prayer, particularly during spell of warm summer weather we are all enjoying.

Mr John Ellis, the Lay-Pastor at the church has been encouraging use of the garden as a prayer space whilst the church building is closed through his weekly newsletter drop around the villages and via the Watton at Stone Community Group Facebook page which has 380 followers. It has been encouraging that a number of people indicated they liked the posting and the garden with comments such as "it was lovely" and "It is a special place for us".

The garden, with its trees and sensitive plantings, sits alongside the left hand side of the Church. There are several well placed benches to sit and relax on and a wonderful feature mosaic of the 'Tree of Life'.

The Meditation Garden is open all day, every day as a quiet space for reflection and private prayer, why not pop-in ?
