A Walk Through the Bible

St James the GreaterUsing 14 different crosses and 14 different wildflowers in the churchyard we will take you on a walk through the old and new testament. 

The crosses were designed and carved by Ant Beetlestone ( and are placed on wooden and stone plinths. 

We hope that churches and other organisations will use the Walk Through the Bible for retreats, consequently a number of prominent theologians have provided meditations on a cross or flower. For example, the Reverend Tim Heaton, author of “The Long Road to Heaven: A Lent Course Based on the Film The Way” has provided a reflection on the Cross of St James.

Funding for this project was provided by The Jane Hodge Foundation, The Jerusalem Trust and Westhill Endowment Fund. 

pasque flower

Pasqueflower (Pulsatilla vulgaris) - the flower for Easter can be found with the Cross of Nails.

Ethiopian Cross

Ethiopian Cross (Acts 8:26-35) – tells the story about Christianity spreading around the world, we meet the first Ethiopian Christian, a Minister in government, who meets the evangelist Philip as he was travelling home from Jerusalem.

If you would be interested in bringing a group to visit the walk please contact us via email which can be found on our contacts page.

 We have created a number of worksheets for children to be used on the walk;
