COMMENTS FROM THE GUEST BOOKS AFTER VISITS TO GOD’S FARM 2024

“I love sitting in the chapel looking at the huge window and watching the breeze blowing the trees and seeing nature. The birds flying to the window look at their reflection, do a little dance up and down and then fly off. It gives me an absolute feeling of peace and I recognise how great is God in his nature! “ (Robyne 2024)

“I love the walk-through the winding, tree lined path to the Chapel. There is a feeling of peacefulness and tranquility. I encounter God at God’s Farm and this brings me closer to Him. This time alone allows me to reflect on my life and ask ‘where am I going in life?’ God’s Farm makes me stop and look at my life . The surroundings show me the love of God in the quietness, the singing of the birds and the crickets. I love the tranquility.” (Margaret 2024)

“The first moment I walked through the forest at God’s Farm towards the Chapel, I was instantly aware of God’s presence. I will never forget that experience and I heard God’s breath through the rustling of the trees. That feeling is the same on every visit.” (Gemma 2024)

‘God’s Farm is always a place to ‘come away to’ for peace and a certain contentment; whether it is in the Chapel, or having a quiet cuppa with Mary or other ‘friends’ of Gods Farm. There is a real, quiet and unspoken connectedness between those who visit, either for an hour or two; a day or a weekend.” (Nola 2024)
