Good Friday Meditation at the Barn

On Friday 14th April there will be a Good Friday pictorial meditation at the Barn at 3pm. Consider how the Easter story has been portrayed by artists through the ages as you take a gentle stroll between the barn and the church.

The barn is open.....

The barn is open Thursdays -Sundays 
until Palm Sunday, 9th April
(we will then close for a short break over Easter)

Ash Wednesday sunlight heralds the message

Thou takest  the pen and the lines dance
Thou takes the flute and the notes shimmer
Thou takest the brush and the colours sing.
So all things have meaning and beauty in that space beyond time where thou art.
How, then, can I hold back anything from thee.

Hospital Cloth of Kindness at the Barn.....until Sunday 26th February

Back in 2015 we were lucky enough to have Sally-Anne Lomas's 'Cloth of Kindness' at the Barn as part of our Julian of Norwich: Compassion and Creativity shewing.

This inspiring Cloth was subsequently exhibited in the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital chapel in 2016 and patients, visitors and staff were invited to sew their own messages of Kindness. These messages are now being sewn into a new Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Cloth of Kindness which will be exhibited in the Chapel this Easter as the start of a Hospital wide Stitching with Compassion Project.

The NNUH Cloth of Kindness will be on display as a work in progress in the Barn until Sunday 26th February and people are welcome to come and assist in the process of joining the patches together or to have a go at embroidering their own message of kindness onto a patch.

We will be open Thursdays - Sundays 1-4pm.
