The garden did suffer a little from the lack of rain but, generally, it's been looking OK. We have started to take cuttings from the geraniums and fuschias in readiness for next year. The roses have taken a hit from sawfly and only the ones in pots seem to be thriving so it looks like we will have to dig out the remaining roses and put them in pots including the climber, Schoolgirl. We are also in the process of planting spring bulbs and trimming the Holly.
If we are around in the garden, join us for a cup of tea.
The garden around the church has been registered with the Quiet Garden Movement.
It is available for use by the local community for quiet reflection throughout the year but we would ask that you respect the privacy of our neighbours.
To find out more about Quiet Gardens, visit the Quiet Garden website at www.quietgarden.org
If you would like Rev. Jean Andrews to lead you through a Quiet Hour, which is the equivalent of Christian Mindfulness, Morning or Day then please contact her using the contact details above. However, the garden is not really in use for this at the moment.
Wednesdays at 8.15pm - please phone church secretary to confirm venue.
This restarts on Thursday, September 13th at the church at 7.30pm. We are studying the Epistle to the Romans. The sessions will have a similar format to Alpha and the Bible Course with input from a video and plenty of time for discussion. The sessions finish at 9pm.
