Travelling from Epiphany towards Easter 2017

15 March 2017


All Saints Church, Branston

The people of the Benefice of Branston with Nocton and Potterhanworth have been exploring the idea of pilgrimage in their local setting. From Epiphany until Easter, the Revd Lorna Brabin-Smith is encouraging parishioners to ‘think about our private inner journeys, or the journey we make together as a Christian community’, with a varied programme of events and activities.

This programme includes meetings to follow the USPG Lent study course, a book group, pub walks, an event described as The whole of the Old Testament in an hour-and-three-quarters’ (Wednesday, 22nd March 2017), and a pilgrimage walk from Bardney to Lincoln Cathedral to be held on Holy Saturday (15th April 2017).

As the Revd Lorna Brabin-Smith has said, We’ve been using the title ‘To be a pilgrim’ to look at the idea of pilgrimage from all sorts of angles. But people learn in different ways, so as well as study groups and quiet days, we also wanted to offer a wider range of options  like a book group and Pilgrims Progress pub walks. It’s been a lot of fun, and people from the three different churches have got to know each other along the way – you can have a different sort of conversation sitting around the table in the pub!
