A small group (10 to 20) of pilgrims on the ‘Western Camino’ route to COP26 in Glasgow, will be passing through Stroud and stopping for two nights, 11th and 12th September, Sunday 12th being their weekly rest day. They are starting in Bristol joining with the ‘Eastern Camino’ starting in London (Welcome!) when they all get to Birmingham. They will arrive in Glasgow on 29th October, two days before COP26 opens on 31st October. Christian Climate Action has organised this pilgrimage, it is described as “a walk for everyone, initiated by Extinction Rebellion UK Faith Bridge/CCA, it is intended to be inter-faith and open to people of no faith”. A programme of events is being organised by Stroud Green Christians.
The pilgrims will be based at St Laurence Church hall while in Stroud and can sleep on the floor as they will have done for previous nights, but they would also welcome an overnight in a bed and a chance for a shower. If you are able to offer a bed for one or two people either Saturday 11th or Sunday 12th, or even to offer a shower, please contact:
