Guided Quiet Days

During 2019, Charlecote Quiet Garden will be hosting a series of guided quiet days. The themes are varied, so do look down the list and notice which ones catch your eye, or touch your heart! All days run from 10am-4pm, unless otherwise stated.

Spaces are limited so early booking is advised.

To make a booking please contact us at and we’ll send you a booking form.

Saturday 15th June
Dementia: Still made in the image of God?
If you are caring for someone with dementia and question where God is in it all, or you are interested in exploring a Christian theology of dementia then join us for one of these days. We don’t promise to provide the answers, but we do promise to create a safe space for honest questioning about one of the most difficult issues for our society today. There will be silent contemplation in which to listen for the voice of God and group conversation in which to share personal experience, struggles and wonderings.

Monday 8th July * Places available*
Saturday 13th July  *Fully booked*
Re-connection with Creation
In an age when people are becoming more aware of humanity’s impact on the natural world, where should our Christian stewardship of creation begin? This day will encourage participants to begin by growing in awareness of our inter-connectedness with all of creation through contemplative prayer. These days will be held in the garden, even if it rains!

*More dates coming soon. If the dates or themes listed here don’t suit you then please get in touch to arrange your own quiet day. Individual and group enquiries always welcome.*

To make a booking please contact us at and we’ll send you a booking form.
Suggested donation for each guided quiet day: £20 (includes lunch)
