Walking the Pilgrim’s Way – Supporting “A Place of Refuge”
When the Bicentennial Celebrations began in February 2018, the then Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, the Very Rev Dr Derek Browning, Lord Bruce and the then co-ordinator of Scottish Faiths Action for Refugees were present as we launched our project to raise funds to support Refugee Communities and the continuing work of the Abbey Church as a place of refuge. Each year since then choir and music events, and walking adventures have added to the funds.
The current situation in Afghanistan has once again highlighted the support needed for refugee communities across the globe, and to bring our Bicentennial Project to a close, the Minister will be seeking sponsorship as she walks four sections of the Fife Pilgrim Way on consecutive Fridays in September.
MaryAnn is hoping that others may want to join her on her walks. Participants are asked to make their own way to each start point either by sharing cars or taking public transport. Each walk begins at 10am.
