northern / The 'late-night conversations' leg
Northern is a year round community that doesn’t end when we reach Walsingham. We embrace everyone as they are and share our stories and talents with each other both during the pilgrimage and through the rest of the year. Our group has a diverse range of ages and experiences so we are never short of an interesting story. Our tales and music and evenings together mean that no one feels like an outsider for very long. We act as chaplains to one another with an ecumenical liturgy that is created by the community for the community. Northern Leg seeks to be a diverse and inclusive community, with LGBTQ+ pilgrims a visible part of the leg. Our liturgy creates a space for people to be in touch with their authentic selves.
