Visit our web page to discover the magnificence of the message of the Hartwood Pioneer Memorial.  You’ve been asking lots of questions and this basic overview and series of links should answer most of them:

The Hartwood Pioneer Memorial is a sculpture park, museum, and memorial complete with engraved granite walls, statues, stained glass, gardens and Visitor Centre to recognise the faith changing contributions of:

  • British Reformers such as John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, George Wishart, John Knox, etc.
  • The translators of the King James Bible
  • The passengers of the Mayflower
  • The 400 Protestant martyrs and 380 Catholic martyrs of the Reformation through whom we enjoy religious freedom
  • The amazing work of Restoration forerunners such as John Wesley, John Bunyan, George Fox, George Whitfield and others
  • The huge British musical contribution
  • The influence and faith of many British authors, poets, and statesmen.
  • The Victorian LDS emigrants who saved the early Church
  • The “stay and build” pioneers of the 1950s and 1960s.

Such a rich tapestry of faith is worthy of recognition and remembrance. Likewise, the memorial is designed to record significant milestones, such as marriage and death, of current church members – a permanent reminder of love and legacy engraved forever in stone. Within the Visitor Centre photos, stories and artefacts will tell the British story and Missionaries will be able to add their details to the Mission Wall.
