Nightclliff Uniting Church is currently raising money to build a labyrinth in memory of some very special members of our congregation - Wendy Eccleston and Jo Brandt.

We have the location and the design finalised and much background research work has been completed by a small and very dedicated team who have met over the last year.                        

A labyrinth is a walking meditation, path of prayer. It is designed to follow a single path in a circular route to its centre. It is not a maze to get lost in but a meditative walk where spiritual healing can be found and prayerfulness and wholeness are part of the journey.

We know that Wendy, Jo and many others appreciated using temporary labyrinths when they were set up at NUC.  Many members of our community have thought about installing one on the premises.  Our intention now is to build a labyrinth in their memory.  We are seeking funds to cover the cost which has been budgeted at $10,000.  We envisage building the labyrinth using local rock and stone to line the path, with grass to walk on.  The labyrinth would be used to remember lost loved ones and in church services for reflection and meditation.  It would also be available to the wider community.

If you would like to support this project, please see instructions below for ways you can donate.   If you would like to support us in the physical hands on building of the Labyrinth we are hoping to start work late May and in June with several community working bees.  All members of the community will be invited to participate including friends of Wendy and Jo.  Details of dates and times will follow.

We are most grateful for your support in this project.
