For centuries, the Christian church has used labyrinths to remind Christians of the forgiveness and redemption found in Jesus. The practice of winding our way through the labyrinth becomes a reminder of our walk with and towards God. Many parish churches have set aside space to grow, trace or construct labyrinths and enjoy the opportunity to spend quiet moments in walking reflection and prayer. This website has a useful summary of the history of labyrinths in the Christian tradition and has answers to commonly asked questions: Grace Labyrinth .
The Roscoe Library has resources to inspire your design and use of a labyrinth, A Labyrinth Prayer Handbook by Sally Welch is just one. This book provides creative resources for worship and reflection, tips on how to plan a labyrinth event, and ideas for using the pathways with schools, young people and in the wider community.
