Each summer (since 1975) the Diocese of Arundel and Brighton organises an ecumenical walk to a place, shrine or area exploring a particular theme or aspect of our faith and Christian heritage. What we rediscover, year after year, is the amazing personal and community value of going on a pilgrimage as our medieval forebears did, where the journey, walking, laughing, sharing, praying, singing, etc. is as important as the destination. We stop at a pub for lunch and sleep on the floors of church, school or community halls. We try to walk on footpaths not roads.


Our pilgrimages are open to all, so long as you are able to walk about 15 miles per day and sleep on a floor.


Our Pilgrimage in 2019

In 2019 we walked from Lincoln to Whitby, in a pilgrimage dedicated to St Hilda of Whitby.

Visit the 2019 diary pages to relive the experience.

Note that you can see details and diaries from earlier pilgrimage on our pilgrimages page.
