St Mark’s Garden

The church garden is open to all as a place to sit, contemplate, and take a moment out of a busy world. Bridget, who tends to the St Mark’s garden, explains what it means to her:

“I was blessed to be able to spend a lot of time during the beautiful spring and early summer in the church grounds. I realised that without watering and weeding the garden areas would not thrive and I had time to do this. Working outside in the fresh air and close to the church building, I felt more comfortable and relaxed than in many other places.

“I felt closer to God in His garden. This helped when I was missing the church services and holidays I had planned. A number of local people came through to enjoy our flower beds, our seats and the wildflower meadow at the back of the church and many stopped to speak with me.”
