Prayer Walks

The purpose of Prayer Walks is to give time for meditation and reflection and they have been part of the Christian tradition for many centuries. Walks can be done alone or in groups and can take a number of forms. The most familiar will probably be a pilgrimage but any time spent seeking escape from the everyday pressures of life in walking has to be good. As you walk you can spend dedicated time in prayerful consideration of all that surrounds you, your life, your family and friends, your community and the wider world. Within the environment in which you walk there will be a multitude of stimuli to provide focus – the beauty of the world, great architecture, the joys and challenges of life, and so on.      See full story...

We usually adapt quite well to new friends and a widening circle of acquaintances.      See full story...
