Bishop's Walk and Talk - Overnight Retreat at Launde Abbey

23 September to 2pm 24 September

Clergy only for the overnight retreat

Get some fresh air, enjoy the countryside around the diocesan retreat house - and take the opportunity to ask Bishop Donald any questions you'd like! 

The walk will commence at 10am on the first morning. After lunch, there will be time to talk to Bishop Donald. The rest of the day is free to enjoy the Abbey.

On the next morning, Bishop Donald will present a talk about the English Civil Wars.

This talk is open to both clergy and laity.

Our time together will finish after lunch. For those who wish, a trip can be arranged to visit nearby Withcote Chapel, currently under the protection of the Historic Churches Trust.

If you have mobility issues, please feel free to enjoy the Abbey rather than taking the walk.

Speaker: The Rt Revd Donald Allister was installed as Bishop of Peterborough on 17 April 2010. He is committed to seeing people and churches grow in love and service to Jesus Christ.

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