So what’s the story…?

So what’s the story…?
June 14, 2019 Judith Simms

Join Methodist President-Designate Revd Barbara Glasson, walking from Huddersfield to the Methodist Conference in Birmingham.

The President-Designate of the Methodist Conference, Revd Dr Barbara Glasson (Director of Touchstone Centre, Bradford) is undertaking the challenge of walking to this year’s Conference, taking place later this month in Birmingham—and she’s inviting people to walk with her!

Setting off from Huddersfield on Friday 14th June, the walk will follow canal towpaths southwards through Ashton Under Lyne, Macclesfield, Congleton, Penkridge, and Bromford, before arriving at the NEC on Wednesday 26th June. Daily walking distances range from 7 to 13 miles, and the invitation is for anyone to join Barbara at any point of the walk, for any distance—a mile, a day, or more if you’re feeling fit!

The theme for Barbara’s Presidential year is So what’s the story …?, and she is inviting people to share stories as they travel along. Walkers will also be sowing wildflower seeds along the way as a practical way of showing that the Church is passionate about and committed to tackling environmental issues.
