Celtic Themed Pilgrim Service Returns To Shaftesbury

Rev Mary Ridgewell restarts her pilgrim services at St James Church on Sunday at 6pm.

Mary first experimented with this form of worship while she was prison chaplain at Guy’s Marsh.

It differs greatly from the traditional church service and is inspired by Celtic Christianity, practised on the Hebridean island of Iona.

Mary later introduced these informal services to East Knoyle Church, where she had been working with Clouds House clients.
