Several Church of Scotland churches will be hosting a bike pilgrimage for persecuted Christians that will pass through the country in late May.
The pilgrimage, which will set off from north-west Scotland on May 17, is in aid of Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), which advocates for persecuted Christians, and direct aid charity Release International.
Among the group are three Anglican vicars, including 75-year-old Robert de Berry (above), who has organised the pilgrimage, and a Baptist minister. Rev de Berry, who has visited several of the places in the world where persecution of Christians is particularly bad, said: "The encouragement and generosity I have experienced in setting this up has been terrific."
As the journey will begin at Cape Wrath and go through Derbyshire’s Hope Valley en route to the Sussex coast at Peacehaven on June 16, the pilgrimage has been named ‘Wrath, Hope, Peace’.
At each stop, the pilgrims will be hosted by local churches, and on most evenings local Christians are being invited to join them at 7pm for 7.30pm to pray for the millions of persecuted Christians around the world.
The prayer venues in Scotland are:
