Camino Course

Welcome,

We are so pleased that you are interested in joining the Camino Course. The Camino de Santiago is an ancient pilgrimage route through Spain, and through this course we want to accompany you on a journey to explore the Christian faith – both for those who are simply curious and for those who want to go deeper in their faith.

What will we do?

We will journey together, and we make no assumptions about your faith or previous experiences in faith. We will engage heart, head and feet – our hearts by acknowledging and exploring the love we have experienced in our lives and the invitation to live in the light of Christ’s sacrificial love for us. Through our heads we will reflect, question and debate these big questions, hearing about what the Bible says and the wisdom from saints and authors through the centuries. And our feet – we will reflect on our individual journeys of faith – how faith and doubt and our decisions and experiences have shaped us and our hopes, and how we can situate our own stories within God’s story.

We’ll cover a different topic each week – including:

Who is God – Creator, Child & Spirit? What is praying? What’s the point of Church? Community and Holy Communion

There are four of us leading the sessions, and in each evening will look different but they will include activities such as talks, discussions (it’s up to you whether you’ll want to contribute or not), hearing an individual’s story in relation to the theme of the evening, time to quietly reflect, meditate or pray and discussing shared experiences.

When & where will we meet?

We will meet for an hour and a quarter on eleven Wednesdays from 7 – 8:15pm, from the 12th January to the 25th May. This means we will journey through the Christian year, from the time of Epiphany, when the wise men journey to visit Jesus, to Ascension, when Jesus is taken up to Heaven after the resurrection. Full details of the dates & topics will be sent to you in advance.

We will meet in the office at St Mary & St John Church, Cowley Rd.
