Pilgrimage 2019 – Each year, around the beginning of May, we have travelled around the country from Iona and Inverness to York and the Lindesfarne, with a couple of trips to Belfast in between. We have a very enjoyable coach journey (it’s a bit like travelling with your family, with loads of chat going on) and arrive at a destination hotel where we spend an evening of great fun, waking in the morning to breakfast, before going to worship in a local church. Each year new people join us and are warmly welcomed – they don’t need to be members of our church, but they seem to enjoy the trip, because they keep coming. If you would like to join us on May 11-12, booking forms for Pilgrimage 2019 to Dundee are now available either on our website or from Eleanor Hamilton. Please ask for a form or further information on 526817.
