    Youth Pilgrimage to Holy Island

    Instead of the usual termly youth event in Durham Cathedral The Pulse is taking to the road and heading up to Holy Island for the day! We will be walking the 3 mile Pilgrim Way across the sands (at low tide!) and there will be a short service in St Mary’s Church led by Bishop Mark. We will be eating on the island and there will also be free time and other activities depending on the weather. It is traditional to walk it barefoot but crocs/sandals would work well.

    There will be 2 coaches heading up with a few pick-up and drop-off points across the Diocese. Routes, times and pick-up locations are provisional and depend on numbers from different points. Each group must be accompanied by an adult/leader who will be responsible for the group during the day.

    Coach 1 (A19/A1231) – Stockton, Sunderland, Gateshead [10.15am departure]

    Coach 2 (A167/A1) – Newton Aycliffe, Durham, Chester-le-Street [10.00am departure]
