Welcome to all visitors - Tourists, Seekers and Pilgrims
A place where your mind can be idle, and forget its concerns, descend into silence, and worship in secret.— Thomas Merton
Small Pilgrim Places are:
- Spaces for pondering, breathing, meditating, praying and ‘being’
- Small places, not those already on the map, well-known, or that draw crowds;
- Simple, quiet and unpretentious, with the presence of the Divine;
- Places of worship, gardens, ruins, open spaces, holy wells, etc.;
- Welcoming and inclusive.
The Small Pilgrim Places Network:
- Brings together people who support the ethos of SPPs through prayer and practical support;
- Encourages members to promote the key elements of SPPs - quiet prayer and meditation, hospitality, silence, space and simplicity not only in SPPs but also in their own personal situations;
- Is mutually supportive, encouraging the exchange of experiences, inspiration and practicalities.

New member and new handbook
Sunday 11th March 2018, 5:24 PM
St Margaret Wychling (Kent) has followed hot on the heels of St James Clapton on the Hill (Cheltenham) and St John the Baptist North Baddesley (Southampton) in joining the Network. The 2018 Handbook is at the printers, and a copy is available on the Members' Area of the website, as are the new leaflet and Cycle of Prayer (in SPPN section). We hope to mail everything out to members before Easter.
