We have had the privilege of sharing the journeys with schools of ethos enhancement through facilitating Parable Garden Enrich programmes and theme days and contributing to Collective Worship. Please see below for our portfolio of some of our school projects. We evaluate each project with the school community to ensure high standards and effectiveness. NB the images take some time to load.

Feedback from staff about the ‘Treasure Hunting with Parables’ Theme day and Parable Prayer Garden’ Design as part of the Parable Garden Enrich Programme:
- “The activities were nourishing the children and adults both spiritually and emotionally and hopefully they would have a better understanding of the four parables as well as a deeper response from their own hearts”. Headteacher
- “A real sense of a community with both children, teachers and the local vicar joining together and enjoying a day of creative activities relating to the four parables”. Teacher
Oxford Christian School, Oxfordshire – ‘Exploring Gardens in the Bible’ and Parable Prayer Garden design
Feedback from staff and pupils about the Exploring Gardens in the Bible and Parable Prayer Garden enrichment project:
“Thank you for showing us new ways to use the small church premises, creating and developing such a creative and wide-ranging project from a small garden. It has been wonderful to allow the juniors to regularly water the garden, watching the plants grow and the flowers blossom colourfully. We also did some dead-heading, remembering about the metaphor for pruning and spiritual growth” Teacher
