House of Prayer layout plan envisaged for initial 7-acre green-field site in 2009, showing accommodation (with numbers in each dwelling) around a central garden, oratory at the east end opposite the refectory and library at the west end. Other features, such as forest garden, woodland edge with swale habitats, aqualculture ponds, wells, reed-bed sewage treatment, and coppicing for wood fuel and use were also included. Unfortunately the site became unavailable the following year.

The young people’s yurt in Weardale where we prayed, listened in silence to the sounds of the world outside and told stories, sang songs, worked with raw wool, and ate home-baked cakes and drank organic cocoa. All by the light of beeswax candles. We finished each evening with Compline.

 

So what do you think?
