In September 1513, in the space of several hours, 12,000 men – including l0,000 Scots and their king, James IV – were killed here, in the most horrific battle in Northumbrian history.
One mile away and 499 years later, the United Reformed Church* in the village of Crookham is in the process of transformation, from a space used solely for worship to an inter-faith, global peace and reconciliation center. The Crookham Peace and Reconciliation Center has come into being not only to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden; it will stand as witness to the terrible cost of war, in a place that has suffered so deeply from it, while supporting humanitarian efforts and charitable organizations committed to the relief of those affected by war.
Through the vision of the URC’s North Northumberland Mission Partnership, and as part of Flodden l5l3’s Museum Without Walls, the church will become a meeting place where human beings can come together to participate in lectures, seminars, exhibitions, music and arts events centered on the themes of peace and healing in a world broken by war. In addition, the Crookham UCC churchyard will be converted into a peace garden, which will feature a timeline from l5l3 noting significant points in world history of both peace and conflict, and serve as a sanctuary for personal reflection, healing, and hope.
The Crookham Peace and Reconciliation Center project, which will launch on New Year’s Day 2013, with a walk from the church building to Flodden Field and back, is currently establishing links with such diverse peace-committed organizations as Edinburgh’s St. John’s Episcopal’s Peace and Justice Centre, the Iona Community (Scotland), Charleston (South Carolina) Peace One Day, the Taize Community (France), among others.
