Lay Pioneer Training Taster

"Numbers are down, people come less often and we are running out of ideas, volunteers and young people - what have we got to lose!"

In changing and uncertain times there are huge challenges for all our churches - BUT there are also many opportunities and many people are open to faith like never before. Find out how to connect with the people who are searching but too shy to walk up the church path.

• Wondering how to connect with non-church goers in your village?

• Concerned that there are no young people in your church?

• Ready to try out something new - but don't know where to start?

• Want to meet others who have 'had a go'?

• Want to hear what churches have learned in lockdown about how to reach out?

This FREE Taster event for the Lay Pioneer Training Certificate Course is open to all churches and denominations. Why not check it out to see how it might benefit your church.

We are hoping to livestream the event as well as in-person training.

The evening will start with a simple meal of a Baked Potato at 7pm in the Church cafe.

If you want to bring along a friend or colleague too that would be wonderful.

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
