Distance: Your choice — Time: Your choice
Advent is a time of waiting, a time of hope, expectation, anticipation and wonder.
When we walk, we can intentionally
make space for self-reflection. We can
take time to become aware of, and
notice God’s presence in the world
around us, as we prepare our hearts and minds for the coming of Christ.
This month during the weeks of Advent, we invite you to make up your own routes around Haxby and Wigginton, and as you are walking, to reflect on the Advent themes of Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.

About the Prayer Walks
This is the third in a series of Prayer Walks, for you to use by yourself, in pairs, or as a small group. (Please practise appropriate social distancing when walking with others!)
Each walk in the series has a theme and an opening prayer. It will start from church and follow a short route around the roads and footpaths of Haxby and Wigginton.
The routes may vary, but in each there will be opportunities to pause and pray if you would like to do so. There will be ideas for prayers, but you can of course make up your own.
Alternatively, you might like to just walk the route. Or perhaps make up your own route but make reference to the themes and Bible verses.
We hope that you will find these guides useful as we continue to seek and draw close to God in these uncertain times.
