Batheaston Churches in Partnership: Projects


One of the many benefits of churches working together is that ideas and resources can be pooled and projects started to help bring benefit collectively to our local community. This page highlights the work in which the Batheaston Churches in Partnership is working for the benefit of those who live in the area.


Please support us as, and when, you can and watch this page for updates on progress and new projects.

BCiP: Project - The Batheaston Memorial Wall and Garden

We have created a reflective space, in effect a garden of remembrance, for families in the village to sit and remember loved ones.


We have built a carefully-designed memorial wall which can have plaques attached to it and enclosed a landscaped open “garden” space in which ashes can be buried. Burial of ashes in the churchyard is open to all residents of Batheaston and is in no way restricted to members of a particular faith community, and it is important to our vision that the facility will be available for those of all faiths and none.

The scheme is best described in our architect’s specification: “In this scheme the garden of remembrance is embraced by two “arms” – one being a stone wall which rises from the ground to reach for the heavens, the other a low yew hedge which continues a thread of life rising up the hillside.

Each limb of the scheme directs a route into and from the garden and loosely enclose an area of the churchyard where the burial of ashes can take place.
