The Pilgrim Way

In preparation for the 2020 Year of Pilgrimage we are excited to launch The Pilgrim Way to the Diocese of Durham as we gather clergy and representatives from every parish at the Waymark conference this October.

The Durham expression of the Year of Pilgrimage will include –

  • Launching a special Durham Diocese edition of the Pilgrim Way booklet (a user-friendly intro to Christianity produced by Paula Gooder, Steven Croft and others for every Parish to use in mission and evangelism to help friends, colleagues and neighbours begin to explore the good news of Jesus)
  • Encouraging people to use the Blessing Course (a 6 topic discipleship resource specially created for the Diocese of Durham)
  • Celebrating the opening of the four Durham Pilgrim Paths, each of which takes walkers on a journey from a point of historical and spiritual significance to the Cathedral and which, along the the way, invites and supports travellers to use their journey to reflect on some of the themes of the Gospel.
