St John’s Annual Pilgrimage
What is it?
The St John’s Annual Pilgrimage is a journey from St John’s through the English countryside, usually following a traditional route of Pilgrimage. The journey is either by foot or by bicycle.
Our first one was in 2003 in celebration of the church being 150 years and was to Canterbury Cathedral, since then we have been to Cambridge, Rochester Cathedral, Guildford Cathedral, Bradwell on Sea, St Alban’s Cathedral, Penhurst Place, St George’s Chapel Windsor, Chelmsford Cathedral and in recognition of 160 years in 2013 we returned to Canterbury Cathedral.
What is it for?
The St John’s Annual Pilgrimage is an opportunity to get to know one another better, to enjoy the English countryside, to reflect, and to have conversations. For those new to St John’s it is a great opportunity to meet others.
When is it?
The pilgrimage happens each year over the early May Bank holiday, and lasts for two and half days. You can join the Pilgrimage at any stage, for as long as you like. The dates for 2014 are 3rd-5th May and watch this space for the destination!
