St. Laurences - Garden of Peace

04 Jan 08

The Garden of Peace is for the interment of ashes especially for those not requiring a visible reminder of their loved ones but would prefer for their remains to be in the Churchyard.

It is a unique place in the churchyard, open to all for the interment of ashes only. No other commemoration e.g. flowers or plaques are permitted.

Prior arrangements are to be made with incumbent or wardens, who will notify of the procedures and cost.

Names may be entered into a Book of Remembrance on request and space will be provided for a message.

Personal Profile
Rev. John Langlands

 It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome you to St Laurence.  Frances, my wife, and I have received a very warm welcome ourselves, so you will not be disappointed when you visit St Laurence.  I am also the vicar of the other churches in Ansley and Arley – St John’s, St Michael’s and St Wilfrid’s.

Being in a rural and farming area in the north part of Coventry Diocese is like coming home for us.  A number of years ago I pastored a church in rural Norfolk which was mainly surrounded by arable farms with some pigs and chickens.  The strong sense of community life was something very special.  This should be particularly valued in these days when many folk live such individual, separate and often lonely lives. 

We have just had hot off the press a visiting card which I hope reflects what our church stands for: ‘You will not walk alone.  Together we are with you on life’s journey’.  Over these next weeks, months and years, I hope we can get to know you better and that you will find Frances and myself not just ‘churchy’ people but friends as well, who enjoy life and plenty of laughter!
