Prayer and meditation


From the very conception of the vision of Strawberry Field and for many years before that, there has been much prayer on site. A year prior to opening the new centre, a small group of people met regularly on site to pray for the whole project. This work continues now and anyone is welcome to join us as we pray for our community, for our visitors, and for those connected to us across the world.

On site at Strawberry Field we have a beautiful prayer space which is open to visitors throughout the week to come and spend some moments of peace and quiet, or perhaps to write in our visitors’ book, or tie a ribbon to remember somebody, or write a prayer of thanks for our gratitude tree.

If you would like somebody to pray with you when you visit Strawberry Field, then please do get in touch with us, or speak to a member of staff when you arrive.

If you would like us to pray for a particular issue and you are unable to get to the centre, then please share these details in the contact form. We will then pray for you anonymously during our weekly prayer gatherings.

Every day at Strawberry Field we pause at Midday and have been welcoming people to the Prayer Space for a short meditation. This is only 10 minutes to be still, and Imagine Peace. You do not need to have a particular faith to come along, all are welcome to join us.

“The plan to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
