Sponsored Walk from Cambridge
All Saints’ Haslingfield has a fine memorial window to its missionary Bishop, Charles Mackenzie, who prior to his going out to Africa to help combat the slave trade and to help establish the church in what is now Malawi, walked out from Cambridge to Haslingfield on Sundays to help with services in the church. The full story of his life can be found in the display inside the church, but there is now a link between Haslingfield and Magomero, the place where he established a base in 1861. The Church in Haslingfield together with other parishes in the Mare Way Group has helped with renovation of the school buildings, and most recently with materials for the construction of a church building, which is nearly complete.
This year for the 5th year running, a Walk will take place from Gonville & Caius College Chapel in Cambridge to Haslingfield on Saturday 21st September to raise further funds to complete the church building in Magomero. Sponsor forms for walkers are available inside the church in Haslingfield or from José Hopkins, 01223 872190. COME AND HELP US !
