Palm Sunday Prayer & Meditation Walk
March 28, 2021
10:00 am - 11:00 am
On Palm Sunday morning, we’re organising a reflective prayer walk. This walk is a synchronised but geographically dispersed group walk punctuated by a series of simple prompts to pray or reflect in the area near where you live.
If restrictions are lifted sufficiently, we may organise groups to walk together based on locality. But we’ll plan to use our IGB Unorthodox Walks group to send prompts to folks who want to participate, whether on their own or with others.
All you need for this prayer walk is a smartphone (if you’re in a group you only need one smartphone) and to join the IGB Unorthodox Walks Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/3514205868638924
The walk will begin at 10AM on Palm Sunday, 28th March. You choose your starting point. Prompts will be posted up in our Facebook group at ten-minute intervals (update your settings to receive ALL posts from the group). This will result in a roughly 60-minute synchronised but geographically dispersed group walk.
You are encouraged (but not required) to share your discoveries, photos and insights in the IGB Unorthodox Walks Facebook group.
Taking part in a walk like this means you can slow down and notice features of your local environment you might have otherwise missed or taken for granted. In fact, you might find yourself heading home afterwards, as our friend Andy Howlett says “with heightened senses and a renewed alertness to the fantastical eruptions of the familiar.”

Inclusive Gathering Birmingham is a diverse church gathered together by a common dream: to become a truly inclusive faith community, where doubt and difference are a welcome part of our journey together.
We are a learning community, constantly growing and changing to live out this vision in new and expanding ways.
When we say “inclusion”, we mean much more than mere tolerance or welcome. We believe God wants us all to know that we actually belong. That means people of every race and ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender identity, age and background, HIV status, ability and disability, theological and political conviction are loved, invited, and fully included.
