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 have taken the decision to cancel the Yr6 Pilgrim Days in June and the Pilgrim Worship Events in July. As disappointing as this is, safety and the health of the children, our volunteers and partners is paramount. Schools with bookings will be contacted directly week commencing 20th April.

We have put together a virtual Pilgrim Day which can be done at school or at home, to take part in this, please click here

We hope we can gather together as usual next year but in the meantime we hope you enjoy the virtual Pilgrim Day.
