Events > Ed's Pilgrimage

Ed goes the extra mile for Operation Noah

in fact, from Land's End to John O'Groats

Ed Beale is going out of his way to tell people what they can do about climate change 1,200 miles out of his way, in fact. And every mile will be on foot.

The trek is Ed's answer to the Rainbow Pilgrimage, a day of inspiration and action on 9 th October 2004 . This culminates in a service of dedication for Operation Noah at Coventry Cathedral, where Ed's progress through Britain will be reported.

The man with the mission

Ed Beale is a 27-year old postgraduate transport planning student from Leeds . He is a member of South Parade Baptist Church . An experienced walker, Ed has notched up 11 long-distance trips so far.

Sponsoring Ed's pilgrimage

Walking the length of Great Britain is a lonely job, and Ed would be delighted to know he has your support in his expedition. There are a number of ways you can help.

•  Speaking slots : If you think your church could hear from Ed at a Sunday service with an Operation Noah or environmental theme, or a large mid-week event, please let us know. The CEL website has lots of ideas and resources.

•  Sponsorship : You can sponsor Ed's expedition. A form provided overleaf, with which you can use to gather support.

•  Prayer and support : Ed would be encouraged to know that people are offering practical and prayer support, especially in the event of an emergency, whether they live on or off his route

•  Accommodation : If you think you might live on Ed's route, he would be extremely grateful for an offer of a comfortable bed and cooked breakfast.
