Want to walk with us?

We are delighted to welcome Day-Walkers and those who are able to organise their own overnight accommodation to join us on the Camino. Whilst there may be the odd exception, our plan is to assemble at 9am each morning for any notices, updates and words – perhaps a song or a poem – before setting off at 9:30am.  We would love it if Day-Walkers could join us for that morning gathering so do try to be with us at or a little before 9am – check the route spreadsheet to find out where we will be. Please also join the relevant Logistics WhatsApp group on the Info page as this is where any changes and updates will be posted.

Vision

We are united by our faith; a faith that we can advocate and influence and be the change that we want for our world. We choose to walk to COP26 as a practice of that faith, an act of connection with the earth on which we walk and the people with whom we walk and the communities through which we pass; and we make our way in kinship with the peoples and creatures of the earth who are suffering and displaced by climate and ecological breakdown. We do so peacefully and lawfully, ready to engage and learn, because we care and we have hope.

  • Reflections – Day 11 to 12
