St Mary’s Outdoors Prayer Trail


We invite you to take part in the St Mary’s Outdoors Prayer Trail to connect with yourself, with nature and with God.
Go on a pilgrimage using the labyrinth, learn wisdom from the Oak, learn about the sacrificial love of Birch, be inspired by the Beech tree, treasure childlike joy of the Horse Chestnut, notice the flowers and let your worries go and be still in the go-go-go of life.

Full Instructions   Video of the Prayer Trail



A Prayer Labyrinth has been cut into the grass of St Mary's Green / Field, and we invite you to walk it whenever you wish.
