The Garden of Hope
The Garden of Hope is a tranquil space to reflect and remember.
The Garden of Hope is an area within St Peter’s churchyard that has been specially set aside for the burial of ashes and as a Garden of Remembrance. It has been recently restored and re-planted, and is cared for by a partnership between St Peter’s own volunteer gardeners and the grounds maintenance team from the City and District Council. The regulations governing the care and conservation of the area are those of the Diocese of St Albans within the Church of England.
The Hope Stone - on which is carved 'God is with us so there is hope' - also illustrates the gift of life. The Garden is much enjoyed by local residents and visitors, office workers on their lunch break, families and groups of school children.
