In the Steps of the Bishop

Sponsored walk, 23 September

2017 will be the 9th year in succession when a sponsored walk has been held from the Chapel of Gonville & Caius College in Cambridge to Haslingfield Church to commemorate the walks undertaken by Bishop Charles Mackenzie on Sundays to help with services in Haslingfield.   He later went as a missionary bishop to what is now Malawi and his memorial window may be seen at the east end of the south aisle in the church.

The date is Saturday 23 September and walkers set out following a brief service in the College Chapel at 10.30 am and refreshments are available at the end of the walk.  In itself the Walk is a good social occasion.  In past years we have helped to build teachers’ houses, provide a roof and finishing touches for a new church and helped to complete classroom blocks in the village of Magamero.   This year we are hoping to put some monies towards improvement of the clergy house.   Funds raised are sent to MACS (Malawi Association for Christian Support).   Enquiries and sponsor forms from José Hopkins, 01223 872190, and sponsor forms are now available in Church.
