West Burton chapel have opened a prayer garden in the grounds around the chapel.
You will know that you can pray anywhere, at any time, in any place; sometimes you may prefer to go to a chapel or it's garden.
So why not make a visit to West Burton chapel garden?
It is open 24/7 and there is no charge.
The chapel is on the East side of the village green and you will find it a haven of peace and tranquility.
There are five stations, enter by the main gate where you will be reminded in the current situation to maintain a 2 metre distance from others.
Access is up one step into the garden where rough tarmaced paths and grass,which is mainly cut short, enable you to enjoy the flowers as you take time to pray.
Two stations repeated outside the chapel gardens facing outwards into the village.
We hope you are able to take advantage of this prayer garden at this time when we maybe need some peace and comfort.

Creation reclaimed some of its natural order and we were...
