Small Pilgrim Places Network

1 SPPN Logo CTA borderWe are delighted to announce that All Saints' Waterden has become a member of the Small Pilgrim Places Network.

SPPN is made up of locations around the country where people can find peace and quiet in spiritual and prayerful surroundings. Looking at the attributes that SPPN seek in their members, you can see why Waterden is such a good fit.

Small Pilgrim Places are:

  • Spaces for pondering, breathing, meditating, praying and ‘being’;
  • Small places, not those already on the map, well-known, or that draw crowds;
  • Simple, quiet and unpretentious, with the presence of the Divine;
  • Places of worship, gardens, ruins, open spaces, holy wells, etc.;
  • Welcoming and inclusive.


Inclusive Church

The Church of Our Lady Saint Mary is delighted to have become a member of Inclusive Church.

Inclusive Church is a group of Christians uniting together around this statement of belief: "We believe in inclusive Church - church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, race or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ."

We welcome everyone to the family of our churches regardless of their age, physical ability, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality.
