Prayer Walks around the Diocese - Holy Island

Kathryn Turner writes:

"Holy Island lends itself to many Prayer Walks! We are developing a selection of different lengths and durations.

Please see list below for details"

A Walk around the Island:

  • Google Maps
  • Tide Table- crossing times
  • A route around the island which includes just about everything with possible short cuts included.
  • Mostly level walking but some walking through dunes and option of one climb.
  • Allow 2-3 hours or even longer to allow pause-and-reflection time.

A Trinity of Churches:

  • A route that takes in the three, very  active churches on the Island: St Aidan’s Roman Catholic church, St Mary’s Church of England and St Cuthbert’s Centre (United Reformed Church)
  • Level walking on paths
  • Allow around an hour – but it can take longer!
