Quiet Gardens serve their local community in a simple, low cost way, by providing space in a context of natural beauty.
St Mark’s Quiet Garden, Haydock, Merseyside opened in 2010 the garden is on an area of formerly derelict ground adjacent to the church. It has informal, formal and wildlife areas for biodiversity, and a Spiritual Walk with Labyrinth. It is an intrinsic part of the Eco-Church plan of St. Mark's, which also runs a café and community projects on-site.
The day will take place at the Quiet Garden of St Mark’s Church Haydock in Merseyside and include talks, practical workshops and discussion – with opportunities for silent practice and to meet with others from the Quiet Garden Movement.
We will be joined by Tim Stead, author of ‘See, Love, Be: Mindfulness and the spiritual life’ and ‘Mindfulness and Christian Spirituality: Making space for God‘.
Tim is an accredited mindfulness teacher and associate of the Oxford Mindfulness Centre. A former Church of England Vicar, he now operates as a freelance mindfulness teacher and writer.
