Anti-Racism Task Force Report

Revd Sonia Barron will join us for an hour to discuss The Archbishops’ Anti-racism Taskforce, which was mandated to implement ‘significant cultural and structural change’ on issues of racial justice within the Church of England.

In their statement announcing the Taskforce and the Commission, the House of Bishops stated: ‘For the Church to be a credible voice in calling for change across the world, we must now ensure that apologies and lament are accompanied by swift actions leading to real change.’

The report, From Lament to action, provided a theological rationale for the actions proposed and Sonia hopes in our time together to share with us some reflections on the findings of the report, hear some of our responses, and answer any questions.

Contemplative Photography

Revd Morna Simpson will lead a day exploring contemplative photography as a spiritual discipline. This brings together elements of Ignatian spirituality such as Lectio Divina and contemplative prayer with the art form of photography in a spiritual practice which gives way to new perceptions of ‘noticing’ the world around us.

The day will include a mixture of input and time to explore, and practice with, prayerful photographic techniques which are offered. Any level of experience and equipment (smart phones are fine!) welcome. The church has facilities, but please bring a packed lunch.

A 10 day Pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine

Following in the Footsteps of Jesus led by The Rt Revd Donald Allister

I hope you can join me for my next Holy Land pilgrimage. I confidently expect that it will be:

  • exhilarating
  • exhausting
  • faith-building


For those who have been with me before, this pilgrimage will be different:

  • a full day longer with more activities
  • two bases instead of three
  • starting with Jerusalem and the south, finishing with Galilee and the north


For those who have not been on such a pilgrimage, please note:

  • this is a Christian pilgrimage, and we will worship together, singing, praying, reading the Bible, and celebrating Holy Communion every day
  • you need to be physically fit, able to negotiate moderate hill walking, uneven surfaces, and many steps
  • we will be well fed with lovely Mediterranean / Middle Eastern food, but we cannot always guarantee to provide special diets.

We will of course abide fully by any public health restrictions that are in place as we travel. Do be assured that Lightline will give full refunds if the pilgrimage has to be cancelled for any reason.

We are limited to 50 pilgrims, so get your booking in quickly

+Donald
Bishop of Peterborough
