Preparations for St Cuthbert's Festival

Thursday 30th August 2012
View from St Cuthbert's Corsenside
This will be the lunch stop on Saturday during the St Cuthbert's Festival Walk.  We will start with a light breakfast at St Cuthbert's Elsdon and walk to St Cuthbert's Corsenside for a simple barbecue. Today I bought a few essentials before going to Elsdon to collect frozen sausages that hadn't been used on the wet fete day.  A quick drive to Corsenside delivered them into the freezer nearest to the church ready for Saturday when the afternoon walk will take us on to St Cuthbert's Bellingham for tea.
     Anyone is welcome to join in for all or part of the route (our local St Cuthbert's Trail) and non-walkers can simply come for the refreshment stops!  Or they can help with the car back-up for participants who want to walk a shorter distance.
     There will be very short acts of worship in each church and brief stops en route to recall some of the stories of St Cuthbert and his own journeyings in this part of the world.
