About this event

STAGE 1 - NORTH FORELAND POINT LIGHTHOUSE TO ST MARY'S CHURCH BREDIN CANTERBURY

Retired vicar and avid cyclist Robert de Berry has kicked off a campaign to find ‘bike pilgrims’ for a cross-country fundraising ride in 2022 to raise money for people facing persecution for their faith.The pilgrimage will start on Saturday, May 14th 2022 at Kent’s most easterly point, North Foreland Point’s Lighthouse, and will wend its way on an inland route to Land’s end and Penzance by June 1st. The return leg will resume from Penzance on June 6th by a coastal route back to east Kent, ending on Saturday June 25th.Robert will be speaking in local churches along the route to raise awareness and encourage prayer: “It is a journey of prayer and we are hoping that about forty churches will host us. Local Christians will be invited to join us in prayer for those who are suffering for their faith.”In 2017, a similar initiative by Robert de Berry and a team raised £60,000 in aid of CSW and Release International. Cyclists can join the ride for the full five weeks or just one day, and volunteers are invited to help with hosting riders for a meal or a night in their town or joining them on the route as support drivers.

To take part as a cyclist - you need to make an initial donation of £100 as an entry fee through Eventbrite. Your target per stage is £500. Please raise as much as you can in aid of Christian ministries CSW and Release International.
