Wildlife Beauty Encounter

Our team of volunteer gardeners work to sustain the Churchyard as a place of peace and beauty. The wide variety of plant and animal life is encouraged to flourish through careful and selective grass cutting and maintenance. There are bug hotels, bird boxes, feeders and meadows which all help animals and insects to breed and prosper. At the same time, it is an educational and recreational space, a venue for many community activities. It remains a place of rest for the departed, and a sanctuary where family members can remember their loved ones and meet God in prayer.

Our Vision

  • To manage St Michael’s Churchyard sustainably
  • To protect and preserve animal and plantlife
  • To respect the memory of those who are remembered here
  • To let people, young and old, come and enjoy the peace and beauty of this oasis
  • To glorify God, creator of all 

Our churchyard web site is in its early days. Please visit again as we expand its content to serve our vision of a sustainably managed oasis for the good of the whole community.
