In the Steps of the Bishop


The 8th Annual sponsored walk ‘In the steps of the Bishop’ will take place on Saturday 24th September.   Starting from Gonville & Caius College Chapel at 10.30 am, the Walk will finish at All Saints’ Haslingfield where refreshments will be awaiting tired and hungry walkers.   The walk commemorates one taken by Bishop Charles Mackenzie when he was assisting the Vicar at Haslingfield before he left for Africa in 1855.   He established his base at Magomero in what is now Malawi, and the Church now raises funds for projects in that village.   Currently we are raising money for a new teacher’s house at the Bishop Mackenzie School.   Forms for sponsoring walkers will be available shortly in the Church, and all are invited to help us.   Bishop Mackenzie’s memorial window may be seen at the east end of the south aisle in the Church.   Enquiries to José Hopkins, tel. 01223 872190.
