The Sycharwell Project is an initiative of Liza Coates [The skipper]. At the time of the re-opening of the Union Canal to navigation in 1999 she was a Lay Assistant at St Mary’s, Dalmhoy Scottish Episcopal Church near Ratho. She realised the potential for spiritual refreshment in the context of the water and wildlife on the canal. In the year 2000 she brought a narrowboat from Nantwich to the Union Canal in order to develop this opportunity. As a member of the Third Order of the Society of St Francis she has found delight in being able to use the narrowboat as a place of prayer and as a temporary hermitage for quiet time alone. But also she is pleased to be able to share the blessings of this space with others in need of rest and refreshment, or seeking conversation and encounter with other people who have different spiritual experiences.
