Pilgrimage is enjoying a great resurgence and is more popular than at any time since the Reformation. To make a pilgrimage was often a once in a lifetime event in search of meaning and purpose, often culminating as the pilgrim finally stepped across the threshold at a shrine or other sacred place. The Journeys of Faith series of pilgrimages from Epworth, Louth, Navenby and Sempringham to Lincoln Cathedral provide an opportunity to walk in the steps of Ancient pilgrims.
The focus of this pilgrimage is Gilbert of Sempringham, who in his own journey of faith gives us an example of a life transformed. Beginning at St. Andrew’s Church in Sempringham, the pilgrimage is split into 2 stages with a total distance of 43 miles. The route calls at many churches and provides information on the buildings and the communities they serve, as well as help and information on local transport. Once the pilgrimage has been completed, you will receive an embossed Journeys of Faith Stamp at Lincoln Cathedral
