Journeying Pilgrim holidays in Britain and Ireland

Journeying started life in 1988, leading small groups of people on pilgrimage to the more remote parts of Britain and Ireland, following in the footsteps of the early Celtic saints. We remain non-profit-seeking with a spiritual ethos and a faith journey in a small, informal, personal way.

Leaders are volunteers and come from all walks of life, and from a wide range of denominations, from ordained ministers to charity workers and business people. They are all experienced in leading group walking holidays and have discovered a closeness to God through travel to remote places and have a passion to share this with others.

Our aim is to enable any walker, hiker, pilgrim to choose a journey that is right for them. Exploring the outdoors is all part of the Journeying experience.

The Moderator Rev. Colin Sinclair will give the 2019 Marion Fraser Lecture.

Scotland’s Churches Trust is delighted that The Moderator is giving the 2019 Marion Fraser Lecture on October 10th, in his own Church at Palmerston Place at 7pm. (10 Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, EH12 5AA).

The Trustees of SCT are grateful to Rev Colin Sinclair, a Stirling University economics graduate, for finding the time in his very busy year to present this Lecture, named in honour of Lady Marion Fraser, a Trustee of SCT and great supporter before her sad death on Christmas Day 2016.

Marion, a former Lord High Commissioner to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland was a significant figure across the Scottish voluntary and cultural sector and at the time of her death, she had the distinction of being the only woman from outside the Royal Family appointed to become a member of the Order of the Thistle, Scotland’s highest chivalric order.

The Moderator’s lecture is titled

The place of Church buildings in our emotions

The Lecture is bound to attract a large audience with doors opening at 6.30
