The Multi-Faith Room is a place of calm and peace in the hospice and is used by many for a time of reflection, to pray, to have space for thoughts or just to be quiet. It is by the side of the new Hugh Ford Inpatient Unit and acts as a transept and crossing from the main hospice area and the end of life ward.

Along with visits from patients and relatives the Room is also used by people coming to the hospice for the Monday Morning Meet Up, which is a popular and lively social gathering. Once a month there is a Holy Communion service held there, led by The Rev’d Sue Martin, hospice volunteer chaplain, or by Canon Jonathan Riviere, our local Rector. These services have proved very popular and well received.

In December 2017, we were delighted to have both the new Altar Table and a new Altar Cross. The oak table was made locally at Pine and Oak Parlour and the cross was made from the remains of an oak altar, formerly at St Michael’s, Hockering, by The Venerable John Ashe, Archdeacon of Lynn.

We were delighted that The Right Reverend Jonathan Meyrick, Bishop of Lynn was able to dedicate the Altar, Altar Cross and the Multi-Faith Room as a place of prayer in the hospice. This was conducted at the Monday Morning Monthly Communion service which was led by Bishop Jonathan, and a number of our regulars were delighted to be present as well as Trust Board members and member of staff, Rebecca Meyrick, Director of Care.
