Quiet Garden Plants Discovered

QG Resized

Quiet Garden Plants 


The Quiet Garden team has delighted us with their creativity, hard work and enthusiasm to share the wonders of nature in this special area.  This is now an important part of the Church's presence in the community as much as a place for individual and collective worship.   

The Garden continues to surprise us as we move through the seasons and here's a perfect example of the delight the Quiet Garden volunteers themselves find in the Garden and their wish to encourage others to explore. 

 Josie Dunsmore writes:

"As I was weeding in the Quiet Garden today I looked over the fence at the tops of the gabions and was amazed at the variety of plants that have seeded there in just two(?) years.  I'm no botanist but was able to identify 10 species including:

   1. Grasses
   2. Lesser Celandine
   3. Wood Anemone
   4. Wood Sorrel
   5. Herb Robert
   6. Bugle
   7. Willowherb
   8. Alcemillia Mollis
   9. Sycamore
   10. Forget-me-not

I'm sure more plants will appear through the rotting leaf mould that is nurturing them and softening and disguising the metal stone-filled cages.  It could turn into an extension of the Quiet Garden as a natural wild flower 'meadow'. At present there are loads of wood anemones popping up around the garden and in the patches of woodland across the river.  Wood anemones are ancient woodland indicators, showing that our garden was long ago part of Ackley Bank West Wood".

Our thanks to Josie for this and to all the volunteers who maintain the Garden so beautifully.

Circuit Review Feedback Meeting - 15th April 2015


Following the submission by church members of responses to the Circuit questionnaires and the Circuit review meetings with chirch representatives, a feedback meeting was held last night at Millhouses Methodist Church for the benefit of Millhouses, Dore and Totley Rise (TRM).


TRM went mob-handed with 30+ representatives and played a full, if not boisterous, part in this feedback from the Circuit team and opportunity for discussion of our present and future challenges, suggestions and preferences for meeting them and a sharing of the approaches taken by our good friends at Dore and Millhouses Churches.  The hospitality for the evening was excellent and those who attended enjoyed the opportunity to discuss in depth a snapshot of where we are in terms of the make up of church membership, the potential for growth (both spiritually and numerically), where our mission should be taking us and our links in the community, including ecumenical partnerships.


It will take some time to digest the discussions and to provide some form of assessment for the wider TRM community but it is hoped that this can be achieved over the coming months so that everyone has an awareness of our direction of travel and can play their own part in developing our mission with a sense of purpose and zeal.
