Ryhall to Epworth Pilgrimage, Tues, Aug 30th – Sat, Sept 3rd, 2022 

WHERE? To The Old Rectory, Epworth, north Lincolnshire, birthplace of John and Charles Wesley and home for their upbringing. Their dad was rector of Epworth parish church, often absent, and their mum, Susannah, (had 19 children, 10 survived infancy) brought them up. She taught her own and other village children round her big kitchen table, and tried to encourage in them her own deep faith and love for God. John and Charles went on to start the Christian renewal movement that became known as Methodism. It started round Susannah’s kitchen table! 

This year two of us will walk this pilgrimage, leaving Ryhall Methodist Church at 8.30a.m., to arrive at Epworth on Friday, 75 miles later. 

We invite you to join us on the Saturday at Epworth Old Rectory for a picnic, a service and a guided tour of the Old Rectory. 

The pilgrimage has 3 aims: 

Pray on the way (and be open to whatever God brings) 

Connect with the Wesley brothers (singing our hearts out I hope!) 

Raise money 50/50 for Christian Aid and Ryhall Methodist Church development fund towards a new kitchen. You can sponsor us through Stamford Methodist Church GO FUND ME account – details on Circuit website and Facebook page. 

We will post a short daily video about our progress, which you can watch via the Cir-cuit website, Ryhall Methodist Church Facebook page, or on Youtube, if you enter EPWORTH PILGRIMS 2. 

Hope to see you there on Sat, Sept 3rd. 

God bless you.
