St Paul's Pilgrims Walking Group


This new social club for the Parish was developed after our successful Parish Mission in September 2011. One very enjoyable aspect of the Mission was the sense of fellowship that we felt by coming together with parishioners from other Mass communities. The Saint Paul's Pilgrims Walking Group aims to continue to build on that sense of community.

The cross-country walks will incorporate the local area around Haywards Heath, and as the terrain includes woodland and farmland, sturdy, waterproof shoes are recommended. Each walk should cover about 4 miles and last for approximately 2 hours.

Following the walk, weary ramblers are encouraged to adjourn to the pub for further friendship building!

Ardingly 2013 walk

On a cold but dry Holy Saturday morning, 30 March 2013, a group of about fifteen parishioners and a few dogs gathered in the car park at Ardingly Reservoir to commence a two hour walk which started with a prayer. The walk took us through beautiful countryside, over bridges and along streams to the viaduct which was quite amazing looking through all twenty seven arches. The walk finished back in the car park with delicious cakes and hot cross buns which were most welcome.

This walking group, called the St Paul's Pilgrims, started up over a year ago as a result of the Parish Mission and walks usually take place each month alternating on the last Friday or Saturday and last about 2-3 hours. If anyone is interested in coming along, please check the Parish bulletin for actual details or phone Julia Webb on 01444 454942.
