In the Footsteps of Saint John of Beverley
Church or Deanery groups looking for a place of pilgrimage are very welcome at Beverley Minster. Thousands flocked in pilgrimage to the Minster in the middle ages to venerate the resting place of St John and today’s pilgrims are welcome to join us for a special day.
Your pilgrimage might include a guided tour of the Minster and inside the roof, and a service of communion or prayer during the day. We would be pleased to talk to you about refreshments – a variety of options is available.
You should allow free time to explore the market town of Beverley which owes its existence to Saint John.
“The Annual Rotherham Deanery Pilgrimage took place in June 2011 at Beverley Minster. Over 200 people from across the deanery made the journey to the Minster where we celebrated communion before departing in different ways. Some remaining at the Minster for guided tours, some to Beverley and some to Bridlington. The Minster was excellent, the service wonderful and we were made to feel so welcome. Are you looking for a place for your Parish, Deanery or Diocesan Pilgrimage? Do consider Beverley.”
David Bliss, Vicar of Rotherham and Area Dean of Rotherham
