London City Pilgrimage | London | Tuesday, 27. August 2019

Perhaps we associate pilgrimage rather with rural areas than with a metropolis, and yet to discover a city from a pilgrim’s perspective has its very own charm. In collaboration with Reverend Michael Schaar from the pilgrimage centre in Zurich, we invite you to put on your hiking shoes and to join us on this spiritual journey. A group from Zurich will travel to London to get to experience our city in a new light. It would be wonderful if some members of the Swiss Church and the Swiss community in London would join the group to build new friendships and tell our visitors more about life in London.

Programme

Tuesday, 27 August:
From Limehouse to Angel along Regent’s Canal. Visit of St Paul Old Ford Church, Victoria Park and St James Church.

Wednesday, 28 August:
Parkland Walk from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace. Visit of Highgate Cemetery.

Thursday, 29 August:
Meeting at the Swiss Church in London (morning). Street pilgrimage in Central London or free time (afternoon).

Friday, 30 August:
Along the Thames from Shepperton to Hampton Court (Weybridge Ferry route).


Members and friends of the Swiss Church can participate in the whole programme or join in for individual days. We ask for a donation of £10 per day. Bring your own lunch. Evening meal in a restaurant (optional).

To sign up please contact Carla () by 15 July. We are also looking for volunteers to welcome the group at the Swiss Church on Thursday, 29 August.
