Pilgrim Days & Pilgrim Worship Events

Update on Yr6 Pilgrim Days and Pilgrim Worship Events:

Due to the current situation we find ourselves in with Coronavirus (Covid 19), the Pilgrim Days Planning Group are aware that we may need to take the decision to cancel the Yr6 Pilgrim Days in June and the Pilgrim Worship Events in July. As disappointing as this would be, safety and the health of the children, our volunteers and partners is paramount. Please be assured that we hope to be able to offer a virtual alternative and if this is possible, information will be sent to you as it becomes available. Take care and be safe.
