Diocesan Day of Prayer and Pilgrimage

24 hours of intentional prayer for renewal and mission in our diocese and beyond. 

Day of Prayer and Pilgrimage – 7th / 8th June 2019

You are invited to pray with everyone across our diocese for God’s direction in refreshing and renewing us all for mission. Together, across 24 hours, we can make a journey of our hearts and minds seeking change in our own lives and ways to change the lives of others through the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Join our focused Hour of Prayer – wherever you are – pray with us 4.30 pm – 5.30 pm on Saturday 8th June.

You can join the whole day by helping to organise or participate in a range of prayer and pilgrimage opportunities at home, in your local churches, schools, towns and communities. Ideas and resources will be available below with ideas for planning a pilgrimage. Some of you might like to make a pilgrimage journey to Canterbury. There are several routes, some of them ancient pilgrim pathways, that lead to our Cathedral.
