Saturday 14th September

12:00 – 7:00pm


Corstorphine Churches Together is running a pilgrimage to Glasgow cathedral and the Museum of Religious Life for members of the local churches.  There are ten places available to each congregation, allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.


The buses will leave Corstorphine at 12:00 noon.  We will travel to Glasgow Cathedral where we will hold a short act of worship.  The Pilgrimage will then divide into groups:


  • to visit the Museum of Religious Life 
  • to walk to the Necropolis (steps & inclines)
  • to explore the Cathedral’s Heritage
  • to visit the Zen Garden and Glasgow’s oldest house


The groups will rotate so that everyone may experience each stage.  Tea and coffee (not included in the price) will be available at the Museum Café.  Following the visits, we will enjoy a buffet meal (please advise any dietary requirements).  We will return to Corstorphine at around 7:00 pm.

The cost is £25-00 per person, which includes the transport and meal.  

If you would like to go, please let Gaynor in the church office know before the 25th August. She will give you any further details of how to pay etc.
