Why the Community of the Tree of Life?
The Tree of Life is an image found throughout the Bible. It represents God’s invitation of life, in all it’s fullness, to people everywhere. The Tree of life is first described in Genesis 2:9 as being ‘in the midst of the garden’. The Tree of life appears again in the book of Revelation, this time in the middle of a city.
Like these Biblical images, our Community finds itself located, both in Cathedral Gardens, and at the heart of the city of Leicester. We have chosen this name to represent our calling to live a life which is rooted, flourishing and fruitful. We pray for and work to bless the city and county of Leicester.
