EMEC Kindness Rock Garden During this lockdown and to give us motivation and inspiration of hope at a difficult time in our lives, why not consider collecting a rock and painting an inspirational message on it for our Church Garden.

Once we have received enough rocks these will be collected and placed in a special place in the garden to be dedicated on an official day.
