Voices from the Margins conference reports: Sheffield Pilgrimage

Voices from the Margins logo no strapline.jpgAt our annual conference in Sheffield on 18 November, churches and projects shared stories of how they are listening to voices from the margins of society – and we talked about how we can truly become a ‘church of the poor’. This week we’re sharing some of the stories we heard. Today: the Sheffield Pilgrimage.

Inspired by Church Action on Poverty’s 1999 ‘Pilgrimage Against Poverty’, our local group in Sheffield has been holding an annual Pilgrimage for nine years: walking, praying and visiting church-based social action projects in the city.

At the conference, group members shared photos and reflections from the Pilgrimages – including stories of life-changing experiences.
