Pilgrimage route

Between Advent 2015 and Trinity 2016 I engaged in a Diocesan Pilgrimage of Prayer, Witness and Blessing.

The vision for this Pilgrimage lay in the roots of our Christian Heritage. As I prayed and waited on God, I was inspired by the great Northern Saints, such as Aidan, Cuthbert, and Hilda who took to the road to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ.

To those of you who provided hospitality of sanctuary and refectory, I want to say a huge thank you. As we met and prayed together, I prayed that we may be a mutual blessing one to another. But the sanctuary and the refectory are only part of the story. We must also get out on the road! We are a Church on the road in mission ready to make Christ known in word and deed.
