Our series of Pilgrimages of Song in Suffolk continues with a six-mile walk in the beautiful Suffolk Sandlings, singing in churches along the way, and ending with a fish'n'chip supper and service on the beach at Aldeburgh.
Meet at 9.45am at Friston Church Church IP17 1PX. Well-behaved dogs welcome. The event ends on Aldeburgh beach at around 7pm . Distance: 6 miles. Our transport coordinator will organise a lift back to your car at the end of the day.
Beautiful countryside, varied music and great company
The day begins with a workshop at which we learn the music repertoire for the day. There will be a variety of music styles, with a mix of unison singing and some 4-part harmony - some easy, some a little more challenging, but certainly something for everyone.
We then begin our walk. We encourage walkers to think of the whole day as an act of worship, meeting God through the services in each church, but also through the countryside, and in conversation with fellow-walkers.
Come prepared to sing or simply listen. Those who can't walk the whole route may make other arrangements for travel between churches.
