Courageous Pilgrimage Thy Kingdom Come

Pilgrimage leaders, Ian Mason and District Chair Rachel Parkinson have detailed a route for the forthcoming Courageous Pilgrimage, based on staying at six churches in our Circuit. The route between these will generally involve an eight mile walk at a very steady pace, though will include some rough terrain and stiles.

The route will be:
Church Stretton — Bridges/Stiperstones — Bishop's Castle — Clun — Craven Arms — Ludlow, mostly keeping to the Shropshire Way and staying at the Methodist Churches overnight.

The Pilgrimage will be the forerunner to an ecumenical walking of the Shropshire Way during Thy Kingdom Come. The pilgrims will hand over to another group of walkers on the morning of Thursday 30 May (Ascension Day) in Ludlow. Local churches are planning an outdoor Thy Kingdom Come breakfast event to end the pilgrims' time together.

There'll be no need to carry luggage and the costs for the week will be no more than £100. We are looking for fellow pilgrims who are wanting not just a walking holiday, but an opportunity to form an 'occasional community' with others...making this a real journey of faith. You don't have to be a 'professional Christian' or think yourself one of the 'usual suspects'. You just have to want to make this journey with others and with God. Please note that because of the accommodation arrangements, we are not planning to include under 18's in the group. Please contact Leigh or Janet in the District Office to register your interest: admin@wsmethodist.org.uk by Tuesday May 7 at the latest.

At our Circuit meeting in June we decided to start a Circuit Environmental Group. Let us be bold to think of this emerging group as a Care of Creation Group, after all, we are all stewards of God's creation. The time has come for us all to take creation's health seriously and urgently...today in big and small ways. Maybe you don't really care too much about the environment or...
