An opportunity for walkers, worshippers, diners and sponsors

From Sunday 17th September to Sunday 24th, a group of NWBA team members will be joined by friends and supporters from our local churches as they make their way from Liverpool to Burnley along the historic route of the Leeds - Liverpool Canal. Their aim is to arrive at Burnley in time for our Forum gathering on the afternoon of Sunday 24th.

The canal was once the main artery that connected the various industries of the North West with the port of Liverpool, as well as forging a connection with the canals of Cheshire and North Wales. The walk will seek to bring together a number of strands of our identity as North West Baptists, and you are invited to be part of it.

Each evening, we will be arranging a celebration event at the end of our journey. Through these events we will worship and celebrate together as well as giving focus to the work and witness of local congregations in the area. A group of walkers are bound to attract attention, and we hope through this to share a little of our story, both as North West Baptists and Christian believers, making the event an act of Gospel witness. We want to encourage local church members to join us each day, sharing the journey, making friends and enjoying fellowship with other Christian believers. And of course we will be encouraging people to sponsor the walkers, generating vital resources for Home Mission.

Visit this page again soon as we update it with more details of the journey. Why not plan to join us for a day of walking, or if you would prefer, find out where the lunch stop is and offer some support and encouragement to the walkers.
