Transforming the communities of Essex & East London through Christ’s presence

Follow Bishop Stephen’s pilgrimage!

14th Sep 2016

Stephen Cottrell, the Bishop of Chelmsford, is on pilgrimage across Northern Spain to Santiago de Compostella.

As he follows the pilgrimage route, the Camino del Norte, you can track his progress and read his reflections on a new blog.

On Day One, the Bishop wrote:

“I believe that one of the things to be learned on pilgrimage is trust. Life slows down. You have to travel light (my backpack is about 8kg). You have to work out what you need and what you don’t. You have to rely on the hospitality of strangers. You have to find the way. I am trusting that the road ahead has much to teach me.”
