The Annual Trossachs Picnic and Pilgrimage,
Usually on the last Sunday in August walkers and cyclists set out on a pilgrimage journey from Callander Kirk to Trossachs Church, a distance of about nine miles. Our pilgrimage is designed to be a reflective journey to weave our lives into another story, and so become a prayer which is acted out. The journey is therefore part of the experience and so walkers and cyclists meet up along the route to share times of reflection and activity.
Afterwards everyone enjoys a lovely picnic tea in the grounds of Trossachs Church, taking in the views, the beauty and wonder of creation and, hopefully, the sunshine!
At Trossachs Church we are joined by others who make their journey by car and who are also invited to stop and reflect along the way. Together we process into the church and hold a service, which stresses our responsibility to be good stewards of God’s earth and further draws us into the story of creation and our Celtic forebears.
