27 to 30 August- City Pilgrimage London with Zurich Pilgrimage Centre

Arts and Culture – Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

Perhaps you  associate pilgrimage  with rural areas rather  than with the big city. Yet to discover a city from a pilgrim’s perspective has its very own charm.

We invite you to put on your hiking shoes and to join us on this spiritual journey, in collaboration with Reverend Michael Schaar from the Pilgrimage Centre in Zurich.  The  Zurich group  will travel to London  to experience our city in a new light.

It would be great if some members of the Swiss Church, London and the  wider Swiss community in London could join our friends from Zurich  to build new friendships,  and tell our visitors more about life in London.


Tuesday, 27 August:

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

Wednesday, 28 August:

Parkland Walk from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace. Visit to Highgate Cemetery.

Thursday, 29 August:

Morning- Meeting at the Swiss Church in London.  Afternoon- Street pilgrimage in Central London or free time .

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 towards some of our expenses. Bring your own lunch. Evening meal in a restaurant -optional.

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