[new]Update: The 2016 pilgrimage (our 41st) has now started. The different Legs are walking towards Holy Island / Lindisfarne to celebrate Easter there with the island community. Each have different routes and walking experiences. Follow our pilgrimage as it happens on Twitter, see @northerncrossuk, or search hashtag #nx2016. Updates will be on Facebook too. The walk through Holy Week culminates in the tidal crossing to Lindisfarne on Good Friday 25 March, see details here & PDF here and contact information. Read on to find out why you should choose to celebrate Easter with us next year. Share the fellowship of walking towards one of the most memorable Easter celebrations you'll ever have.

"Come and enjoy a week away with a difference - come join us - a motley bunch of believers - walking on Easter Pilgrimage to Lindisfarne - Holy Island the centre of early Christianity and one of the most beautiful places on earth - join us as we re-trace old pilgrim pathways - walk by the sea side, across ploughed fields, along old railways lines, through woods, sleeping in church halls at night, eating home-made food, saying prayers, snoring soundly till porridge time; meet and be greeted by people on the way, hear the birds, watch the first flowers coming out on the hedgerows as spring comes to life. And when we get there on Good Friday, experience walking across the ancient causeway barefoot, weary feet cleansed by mud and salty sea. On Holy Island help transform the crosses we carry all week with flowers for Easter Sunday; visit the beautiful Church, the castle, watch newly born lambs skip and jump, walk round to the bird reserve, run on the beach, collect shells, drink beer, eat crab sandwiches and generally chill out with everyone! Enjoy the Saturday evening service, the procession to the beach and the Paschal bonfire. Find Easter as you have never found it before!"
