Welcome to Burning Bush Barn!

'its just so nice to be in a real place of rest. I feel my shoulders drop in here. Thank you!'

When we are able to be generally open, our hours are 1-4pm Thursdays to Sundays. However we are sometimes closed between major events or exhibitions. If you unsure, do please check before setting out on your journey to visit us!
We also have other things taking place at the Barn from time to time so if you would like to be on our mailing list to find out what we have coming up, email us on bbbarn@gmail.com

This blog is laid out so that general information and regular events are shown on the right hand side, and special events and announcements are shown as blog posts on the left hand side. Please check both to see what we are up to!

Candlemas - a time for new beginnings at the Barn

Many of you will realise that we have needed to take a rest from general opening at the barn while we have been working through the slow and careful process of working out our newly defined purpose, a shared guardianship and a renewed pattern of being here at the Barn. We give thanks for your prayers and patience while we have been doing this.


'Candlemas', a traditional Christian festival that celebrates the presentation of the young Jesus in the temple, is celebrated on Thursday February 2nd with an abundance of candles that illumine  the sanctuary and the faces with whom such an occasion is shared, whatever faith or none.
After such a while of being closed, dust has gathered and cobwebs have grown in the barn and it needs a clean. Candlemas would be a wonderful opportunity to bring in fresh light and open our doors once again. 

We are therefore planning to clear and clean the barn space during the day, (10am - 4pm ) and then enjoy the sharing of candle light, silence, and a little verse, towards the end of the afternoon as the daylight fades and the shadows fall. We invite you to join us! 

It would be helpful if you could  tell us if you are able to come either to clean or for the candlelight.
If you cannot come, we invite you to light a candle where you might be for the work of the Barn.

There will be no creative breakfast meeting on this day so please bring your own lunch and snacks. 

The barn will then remain open for general visiting
(Thursdays to Sundays 1-4pm)  from Friday 3rd February onwards. 

We hope you will be able to come and enjoy this beautiful, peaceful space in a meaningful way.
