In 2015 we received a Mission Grant from the Diocese of Durham to design and commission a portable labyrinth made of PVC, in the same style as our own which we can take to schools and village halls and lend out to other churches.
During Advent 2015 we laid the portable labyrinth out in the Parish Hall and encouraged people to populate the walls of the labyrinth with donated items for the local Foodbank. We collected 15 boxes of food. People walked the labyrinth during the event.
The children from our Church School, Green Lane Primary School, loved to walk the labyrinth on their visits to the Church. We had the idea of creating their own labyrinth in an unused enclosed yard within the school. We spent a day replicating the Church labyrinth in primary colours with masonry paint. This area is now used as a calming, peaceful space for quiet time and reflection.
