The Methodists wanted to use all the space and so shaped the chapel to the land.
The people here have plans to do the necessary work to enable visitors to enjoy quiet days and other activities here. There is a lot of work to be done but also a lot of commitment and already they have people wanting to come for a writing course in the spring of next year. The members of this tiny and unusual chapel have reimagined its future and are committed to God's mission.

The regular lunch club is run by Audrey. She and her friend Olive are both farmers, Olive still looking after a flock of 30 sheep and so especially busy in the lambing season.
