South Downs Walk 2018

Raising funds for mission is as easy as putting one foot in front of another...

Get in training, tie up your boots and ‘walk with Jesus’ in the beautiful South Downs on Saturday 12 May - to raise funds for Church Mission Society people in mission all around the world!

Choose to walk as far as you like – from a 10km stroll to a 60km hike over lovely rolling countryside, to raise vital funds for God’s mission through Church Mission Society. And our staff will be with you all the way! All the walks are circular and start and finish at Goodwood racecourse near Chichester.

Walking is a brilliant way to build community: why not invite a group from your church to enjoy a day out together?

The walk is organised by an experienced professional events company (Across the Divide) who look after us well throughout the day. 

Partner with Church Mission Society people in mission on four continents! Once you have paid your event fee to Across the Divide (£15 to £80 for adults depending on the length of walk), all the money you raise will directly support our people in mission.
