Diocesan Spirituality Day

19 October, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


A group from St Mark’s has gone in the past to these highly successful days. This year the theme is “To be a Pilgrim” & the keynote speaker is Dr Mrg Warner, an expert on the Old Testament. There are also a whole range of workshops to choose from including ‘Hearing God’s Call’ ‘Celtic Pilgrimage’ & ‘Creativity as Pilgrimage’. Tickets £8 online or £10 on the door;

“Prayer … the heart in pilgrimage” (George Herbert)

Join us in Southwark Cathedral for a day conference of prayer and reflection. We will consider what it means to be a pilgrim on the Christian journey – in your heart, in your head or on your feet.

Keynote speakers:


  • Dr Meg Warner, who is an Old Testament scholar and author of books on Abraham


  • Bishop Christopher, who has been Bishop of Southwark since 2011



Some run in the morning; some in the afternoon. You will be asked to choose workshops on the Checkout page when you book your ticket. Each workshop has limited places, so you need to book in advance to secure the workshops you want to attend.
