BE A PILGRIM AND SUPPORT YOUR PERSECUTED FAMILY
Step into a deeper relationship with God as you follow an ancient path on a prayerful journey from Winchester to Canterbury. It’s a chance to pray for your persecuted church family and raise money to bless your brothers and sisters – many of whom, from Nigeria to Colombia and Syria, have had to flee their homes and walk many miles to a place of safety.
HOW DO I DO A PILGRIMAGE?
How you complete your pilgrimage is up to you. Do the whole route in two weeks or spread the journey over several weekends. Walk in solitude or get a group together. You could even do a relay!
However you decide to do your pilgrimage, we want to support you all the way – which is why we’ve created a free Pilgrimage pack, which includes useful information to help you plan and encourage you on your journey, fundraising ideas to help you raise support and a series of daily reflections to help you pray and deepen your understanding of the persecuted church. If you’re already doing a pilgrimage, let us know by using the online form below. We hope it was a transforming experience.
We also recommend using a guidebook called Walking the Pilgrim's Way: To Canterbury from Winchester and London by Leigh Hatts for planning the specifics of your route and booking accommodation. We have a few copies we can lend to you for the duration of your pilgrimage – if you would like to borrow one, please email us.
“I WOULD SAY ‘DO IT!’ WE ARE ALL PILGRIMS ON THIS EARTH AND IT’S A WONDERFUL THING TO WALK AND WALK AND WALK. I WOULD LOVE TO DO IT AGAIN! I TRULY ENJOYED IT!” - KOFFI, PILGRIM
