This retreat will look at the biblical roots of pilgrimage through to the modern journeys such as the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain. The retreat will have a special focus on Psalm 84 and the Bunyan classic Pilgrim's Progress. With group discussions and times of silence, it will ask if the 21st century Church is the best disguised set of pilgrims the world has ever known.
