  • A weekend of events in Canterbury to celebrate, encourage and support pilgrimage. More and more people are walking to Canterbury. To encourage and support pilgrims walking the Pilgrims’ Way and the shorter Pilgrim routes, a new website www.pilgimswaycanterbury.co.uk, is being prepared. It will have details of accommodation, churches and shrines on the routes and other things pilgrims need to know. Churches on these routes are being encouraged to welcome and help pilgrims on their way, and be enriched in their own faith journeys. Pilgrim passports, certificates and tokens are being made available.   More details will follow, but put the date in your diaries now!
