Mingary is a Gaelic word meaning ‘the quiet place’. It is a non-denominational sanctuary that welcomes all who enter.

Mingary has been developed as a place for personal reflection and offers a peaceful escape from the hectic demands of city life. It offers a haven where people may restore a sense of strength and vitality following trauma and tragedy. Mingary is devoted to healing, restoration, inspiration, vision and empowerment.

Many hundreds of people have already visited Mingary since it opened in September 1999. They have been touched in different ways by their experiences.
