Bradwell Pilgrimage has been running in one way, shape or form for nearly 100 years and gathers people from across Essex (and beyond) for a day of pilgrimage, worship and activities at the historic St Peter’s Chapel in Bradwell-on-Sea. (You can read more about the chapel here)

The 2019 Bradwell Pilgrimage and Gathering will take place on Saturday 6th July and will run from 10:30am until 3:45pm.

Come and join us for a chance to experience the ‘thin place’ where St Cedd sailed down from Lindisfarne to share the message of Jesus with the East Saxons 1300 years ago.
