faith hope and the journey

Faith, Hope and The Journey is the Podcast from Sheffield Methodist District.

During series one you will hear a collection of stories from South Yorkshire, North Nottinghamshire and North East Derbyshire as people from our district share their faith journey and talk about how they are using their gifts and talents to do God's work.

Episode Two – The Peak Wesley Way

You will hear from Sheila Travis who shares her faith journey and about how The Peak Wesley Way was created as a way to help save local chapels in the Peak District.

The Peak Wesley Way is a contemporary opportunity to engage with the ancient spiritual practice of pilgrimage within the beauty of the Peak Park. For centuries travellers and holiday makers have been drawn in by the arresting magnificence and splendour of the Peak District. However, few people have been privy to the hidden gems of the quaint, unpretentious local Methodist chapels and their treasured histories. Each chapel set in its local village has its own story to tell.

The Latin root of the word Pilgrimage means, 'strangers through the foreign fields'. The Peak Wesley Way offers a life changing experience to small groups of up to six people of all faiths and none who are spiritually curious and intrigued by spending time in the ancient holy places, indoor and outdoor. The pilgrimage is for groups of friends or family with a shared quest for adventure, wanting to connect with a simpler greener lifestyle or needing space to reflect.
