Comments and feedback

We invite feedback from Quiet Day participants and venue hosts to ensure high standards of facilitation and that our quiet days are tailored to suit people’s needs.

Amazing concept to explore the links between gardening/horticulture and the Christian faith.  So appropriate as many in Jesus’s audience were farmers.  Reminds us of holistic care he gives us. The whole day worked well for me, thank you!

Creativity – Shades of Winter, Longworth 2016

I would love to invite friends to come to your next Quiet Day!

I especially value the setting, the quiet and beautiful harp music and the opportunity to explore through art materials.

Thank you for creating a peaceful space to step outside our busy lives to be with God.

The Holy Communion was a stunning centrepiece to the day.

Thank you for the chance to stop this busy life for a few hours.

The communion service was beautiful and very moving

Thoroughly enjoyed the day in this beautiful setting of a lovely house, bright and full of light. Also being able to use my long buried creative skills.

I’ve learnt that winter is a time of pruning, strengthening and a deep encounter with the Lord.

Thank you-it’s been a wonderful day of having time with God.  Thank you for all your input and giving us time to think and pray and be – and allowing us to get back to our roots and hearing what God is saying to us. 


Inspiring day, so much imaginative imagery and so many evocative words, quotes and thoughts to trigger the Lord’s ministry by association. Very rich. Thank you!

Very much enjoyed being able to “be” free from distractions.  Very welcome ambience which I could tell had been thought about – lovely having the harp playing when we arrived.

Very attractive leaflet and handouts.

Communion worked really well drawing things together at the end of the morning and keeping flow directed towards Jesus.

Introductions were well presented and lovely to have the creative space.

A very full day- loved script, verses and winter quotes and time to be relaxed and creative.


I thought it was very professional, you made everyone feel relaxed and receptive-  and the materials were very well designed. 

harp playing set the scene beautifully- and the floristry was great too…


it seemed a divinely inspired day of beautifully blended gifts…

a brilliant team of creative presenters and gatherer of thought provoking images and reflections.

I’d love to consider doing something in our village/benefice and in due course will mention it at our church…
