1112 Trinity Prayer Garden Plan
Drawings of the prayer garden under construction at Trinity United Methodist.
Construction of new prayer garden and columbarium began in October
Brasfield & Gorrie was recently named general contractor for Trinity United Methodist Church’s new prayer garden and columbarium. This $545,000 development will provide a sacred place for meditation and remembrance. Located in Homewood, the 4,500-square-foot project began in October.
The project will include a stone labyrinth, fountain area, new columbarium and memorial panel. The columbarium will be offered to current and former members of the church and their families, and the memorial panel will be used to recognize members who have faithfully served the church.
These additions will be located in an outdoor space between the East Narthex and Wesley Hall.
Brasfield & Gorrie is working with Johnson & Company, the architect on the project.
The project was self-funded through the sale of columbarium niches and memorials, as well as through contributions by members and other interested parties.
This will be Brasfield & Gorrie’s second project for Trinity United Methodist Church. In 2005, Brasfield & Gorrie constructed the church’s education building addition and performed an extensive renovation of the original facility.
“We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to continue building our relationship with Trinity,” said Robby Hayes, operations manager at Brasfield & Gorrie. “This prayer garden will add a unique element to the campus and will be a special place all church members can enjoy and appreciate.”
