The Multi Faith Chapel at Myland Hall has been rededicated by the Rt. Revd Roger Morris, Bishop of Colchester and President of the hospice.
The rededication follows the renaming of the room, which was previously known as the `Quiet Room’. The name was chosen after discussions at shhare briefings and exploring names with staff and volunteers informally.
The change of name came after a refurbishment intended to make the room as welcoming as possible. New lighting, fresh paintwork, blinds and chairs have improved the ambience of the room, which is available for anyone in need of somewhere quiet to pause and reflect.
Gill Moore, Chaplain, said: “The care we provide at the hospice is spiritual as well as physical and emotional which is why we have a room set aside to provide a space for the spiritual wellbeing of all people. Our multi-faith chapel is a place where people can come for quiet contemplation, reflection and to remember; it is somewhere where paths cross and journeys meet to find stillness, hope and faith.”
As well as a book of remembrance where the names of people who have died are held, there is a memory tree, a prayer box for anyone wanting to leave a prayer request and a book where people can leave messages and memories.
Visitors can also use a sand tray, finger labyrinths and colouring books to explore their feelings and find a sense of peace or leave a message on the memory tree and light a candle in memory of someone.
