Pilgrim's Rest: A series of reflections on Biblical journeys

The journey of life with Christ by our side is a wonderful path to take.

As with all journeys, it's important to take a rest and refresh in order to keep going.

We can sometimes be so busy 'doing' for others, in our lives and churches that we forget to pause and just 'be'.

These days offer the chance to take a pit stop from the rush of daily life, to listen to God, and to leave feeling refreshed and renewed ready to continue on the great pilgrimage of life! 


Each day starts with coffee at 9.30am and ends with tea at 3.30pm.

Monday 10th February - The Songs of Ascents

With The Revd Christine Broad  

A day of prayerful reflection inspired by Psalms 120-134 - the Songs of Ascents traditionally considered to have been sung by Pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem.

Christine has served in full time parish ministry in a variety of contexts since ordination in 2006. During her time in ministry, she has enjoyed a number of opportunities to lead quiet days on themes including pilgrimage and Psalms, and looks forward to bringing these themes together on this day exploring the pilgrim.

Monday 14th September - Journey to Ninevah

With The Revd Vivien Gisby 

One man's encounters with others, with God - and with himself.

We journey with Jonah to Ninevah and see what happened to him along the way. We watch his reactions to God’s call on his life and gaze on his encounters with the sailors, the people of Ninevah and the great fish. We take time out to pause in the silence to ask what God might be saying to each one of us through Jonah’s journey. The day will finish with a short communion service using Wild Goose liturgy.

Vivien is Vicar at St John’s Weston in Runcorn, Warden of Pastoral Workers and Readers and an honorary canon at Chester Cathedral. She is particularly interested in helping people grow in their faith and discern their gifts for ministry.
