Welcome to The Pilgrims Way Churches

Coronavirus (Covid-19) - our buildings must close but the Church Continues to be alive and active 

We are seeing a huge increase in the number of people falling sick with Covid-19. We must distance ourselves from one another and prevent the spread of infection in order to save lives. For this reason, whilst our worship of God and our care for each other continues it cannot be carried out in the Pilgrims Way Churches as all Church Buildings in the Church of England are now closed.
