Church Walks


About the Project

Church WalkersThis year, I am taking part in the µYPS scheme, which is an opportunity for young people aged 16-24 to be employed by the York and Hull district for one year and undertake a project in their local church.

My project is organising and leading walks for people within our church, the York circuit and wider community to take part in. Throughout this year, they are happening once a month, usually on a Saturday. Each walk will have a theme, normally based on the time of year. The walk will provide an opportunity to discuss the theme with others, as well as being a time for fellowship, and getting to know people you may recognise, but never spoken to.

There will be a variety of walks across the year, with at least one 7+ miles and some nearer 2 or 3 miles, so I hope that all abilities will be able to join me on at least one. Most will take place in the Howardian Hills, but there is a couple which are in the local area for those who would prefer to stay close to home.

If you’d like to join us on any of the walks, contact Peter at [email protected]
