Walking the Story: resources for a personal pilgrimage

Based on the book by The Revd Dr Jane Leach about her experience of walking the ancient pilgrim way to Santiago de Compostela, this course will explore pilgrimage, its role in Christian spirituality and its relevance in Christian life today. Participants will be resourced make their own spiritual pilgrimage and to reflect upon some key questions for contemporary Christianity.

Themes include:

  • Welcoming the stranger
  • Church as guest and host
  • Christ the pilgrim
  • The Christian story in a postmodern context
  • Connecting with Creation

‘I feel I am now better prepared spiritually to discover deeper truths about myself, loss/suffering, love, the presence of God, strangers/friends and the world we inhabit when I embark on the physical Camino pilgrimage next year.’

Walking the Story participant

The pilgrimage has been a privilege to share, it has begun to open up the questions I came with and make them less fearful.


The course will run for 8 weeks, commencing on 14th May 2018. Participants are asked to set aside approximately 4 hours study time each week.
