Moravian Pilgrimage

Day 1 - September 11th

On a bright sunny Saturday, 10 intrepid explorers, brave enough to try to visit all the Moravian Churches in the British Province, gathered at Leominster to begin their journey. They had all travelled some distance to be there setting off very early. This adventure relies on the congregations for food, shelter and encouragement along the way, and for the congregation to join in with the liturgy written for this event. So, after breakfast, the liturgy including the Hosanna anthem and the pilgrims' song (written for this event) was shared in the church with the congregation present. Then they were off. Next stop Brockweir, then Kingswood, Bath Coronation Avenue, Bath Weston, Tytherton, Swindon, Blackbird Leys, Harlesden, Hornsey and finally Church House. Quite a marathon, lots of driving, lots of people met along the way. The distance and the tight timetable did mean they were a little late arriving in various locations, but they got there in the end, were fed along the way, and sung and prayed in each church.

This has all been done to raise funds for the Youth Fund and for the Mission Board, as well as for the personal challenge for the pilgrims. If you feel you can donate there are several ways to do this. The easiest is the go fund me page:

Alternatively, money can be sent to the 'Moravian Union Inc' by BACS or cheque to Church House, making sure the payment is labelled 'Pilgrimage'. Card payments can be taken over the telephone by calling 020 8883 3409.

Thank you to everyone who has made this possible.
