You are cordially invited to join a group who will be doing Prayer Walk for Refugees, from Cambridge to Ely on Saturday, 19 August. The originating group are Christians from the Multicultural and the Traditional denominations and we will be praying, and walking the 17 miles from Pembroke College to Ely Cathedral, along the riverbank.
The walk serves two purposes.
· To express our prayerful concern about the Refugee crisis. (We will learn something about walking!)
· To enable people (Christians and others) to meet and learn about each other, celebrating, rather than fearing diversity. (Walking together is a perfect way to start conversations.)
We already have walkers from a wide range of backgrounds (Nigerian, Ugandan, Jamaican, English, Scottish). If you would be interested to learn more and might wish to join this walk, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or (preferably) express your interest at https://tinyurl.com/CamElyRefugee
9 AM to 5 PM.
People can also join or leave the walk at Waterbeach (6 miles) and Upware (10 miles).
For those who wish, Evensong at the Cathedral at 5:30 PM and a Pilgrims’ Welcome in the Lady Chapel at 6:30 PM.
Come to a Concert in preparation for the Walk – Pembroke College Chapel on Friday August 18th 8-9pm, to include music by Morales, Purcell, Kuhnau, Sheppard, Wood and Macmillan. (Collection for the White Helmets; Reception in the Old Library)
