The habit of walking together with hearts set on God, and within God’s glorious landscapes, following in the footsteps of the saints has touched many hearts and minds over the centuries and is experiencing a renaissance in the UK today.
Having completed the walk on our doorstep, this year 20 pilgrims from a variety of local churches are setting out to walk in the footsteps of St Cuthbert.
Cuthberts story is far too long for this newsletter; he was a monk and an abbot in the 7th Century who was constantly seeking to leave the world behind and constantly being drawn back into the world.
Although not all can afford the time or have the physical capacity for the walking you can still join in from home as we explore the Northumbrian landscape and discover the traditions of Celtic Christianity of which Cuthbert was such a cornerstone.
If you would like to follow us there is a WhatsApp group you can join where there will be daily updates and we may even manage to share in occasional moments of worship via zoom. Join by following this link:
You can also support us by sponsoring the pilgrims who are dedicating their walk to Christian Aid (see details below).
