Celebrating our Partnership in the Gospel

Joint Lee Abbey / Scargill journey
during ‘Thy Kingdom Come’
Ascension to Pentecost 10th – 20th May 2018

To coincide with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s global and ecumenical initiative, ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, Scargill and Lee Abbey are jointly embarking on a pilgrimage of prayer and mission to celebrate our long standing partnership in the gospel.  Starting at Lee Abbey Devon, representatives from each community will journey to Scargill House in North Yorkshire between Ascension and Pentecost 2018. On route Paul, Esther, Jonathan, Tim, Sheila and Kate will visit other communities, groups and churches sharing in prayer, testimonies and stories and seeking opportunities to share God’s love and grace with all they encounter.
