Walking for Lent 2019

“ Very seldom do you come upon a space… when you may stop and simply be. Or wonder who, after all, you are.”

Ursula K Le Guin

Lent is a special time in the Church’s calendar that takes place in the run up to Easter. Lent starts on Ash Wednesday which this year is the 6th March. The period of Lent lasts for 40 days (not including Sundays) and ends on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Day. It is a time when Christians remember how Jesus spent 40 days and nights in the wilderness being tempted by the Devil. During this time Jesus fasted and prayed. You can read about this in Matthew 4:1-11 and Luke 4:1-13.

During Lent this year we will be continuing our very popular Lent walks around the beautiful countryside in and around Roydon.

There will be a walk each Wednesday morning for 6 weeks starting on Wednesday 13th March. All walks will start from St. Peter’s Church and they will take between 60 and 90 minutes. There will also be 2 Sunday walks. The walk on Sunday 14th April will take a bit longer because it includes a pub lunch.

Everyone is welcome! Come along and enjoy seeing our beautiful local countryside, wildlife and the first signs of spring. Walks give us time to find some peace for contemplation and reflection – precious time in our busy world. You will be able to take some time out, if only for a short while. You will return feeling refreshed and energised!

The dates of all the walks are as follows:

Wednesday 13th March - 9 am

Sunday 17th March -10.45 am

Wednesday 20th March - 9am

Wednesday 27th March- 9am

Wednesday 3rd April - 9am

Wednesday 10th April - 9 am

Palm Sunday 14th April -10.45 am with a pub lunch half way. (Please let me know in advance at if you intend to come on Sunday 14th April for the walk and lunch, so that I have some idea of numbers for the pub lunch.)

You do not need to be able to attend all of the walks, you can come along to as many as you like.

Please wear walking boots, sturdy walking shoes or wellington boots.

I look forward to walking with you. If you would like any further information about the walks please contact me, Helen Iles, at or 01279 792054.
