Lent Trail Instructions

Welcome to Walkabout  Lent

Thank you for joining in our Walkabout Lent.

This journey will be a signposted walk around 3 of our 4 Churches and Churchyard surroundings and will be available from Ash Wednesday until Easter

(St Gregory’s Church: Bedale, St Johns: Leeming and at St Marys: Thornton Watlass.)

It’s a fantastic opportunity to spend some time together or maybe in solitude reflecting and meditating on the message of Lent and the beautiful world in which we live.

The 5 stations outside are based around the concept of Loving, Living and Learning as well as Lenten thoughts and Scripture.

There is a 6th Challenge Station based on Growing Gods Kingdom available in the churches.

You will be able to interact with the 5 numbered signpost points either by QR codes or by using the booklet available in each church, which will contain all the relevant information.

The journey will be mostly outside ,around the Churchyards.

The weather will hopefully be a little more clement in February but please bear this in mind and come suitably attired. As far as possible you will be on designated footpaths, so the environment is always protected, as are you but sometimes the ground may be a little uneven or slippery. 

(Please note we cannot accept liability for loss, damage or injury).

We really hope you will enjoy this exciting project and be able to share in Lent in a Covid safe way.

A big thank you to Juliet Balme from Colouring Calm who has very kindly designed our cover for you to colour in.
