Wander in Wonder

8 June, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

As we move forwards with the roadmap through pandemic restrictions, we’re offering another opportunity to share a City Women “Wander in Wonder”, on Tuesday 8th June 1pm-2pm meeting in person to walk and talk. Just being together will be so important… and we’ll share a circular walk within the lunch hour, starting and finishing outside Birmingham Snow Hill Station.

We’re going to use the same route as we walked in March, for those who were there on that day of Spring sunshine. It was really positive to get together in person – and you can read about the event, as well as participants’ advice to others returning to the city centre for the first time in a long time, here.

So the invitation is to “Wander in Wonder” – to share a wondering walk through Birmingham’s canals and streets. I wonder what your mental map of Birmingham city centre looks like – and how far it extends beyond your regular bus stop or station and your office or favourite cafes or shops… We’ll be sharing a Birmingham city centre map drawn by a lover of Birmingham city centre, Raluca Vetor, who’s helped to plan our “Wander in Wonder”. Book on via Eventbrite HERE.

In this season of shifting perspectives, you may “wonder” at modes of transport and our “need for speed” as we go at walking pace and use the canal towpath, as well as noticing the road and rail network around us. Or you may “wonder” at the trees which make a statement about sustainability in the heart of our urban landscape. Or you may “wonder” at the impact of meeting in person, after so much separation and online meeting.

Practicalities – timing and footwear and weather:

  • Please arrive on time – we will set off promptly from the entrance to Snow Hill Station at 1:05pm, so that we will be back at Snow Hill before 2pm.
  • Make sure you wear appropriate shoes to be able to walk on the canal towpath, as part of our circular walk.
  • If it rains? We’re still walking, whatever the weather – and it’s your choice whether you come: if you do, please wear appropriate clothes and you may want to bring an umbrella!

In line with the Covid-19 guidelines, we’ll keep two metres’ social distance as we walk. We’ll be outside for the whole event, so there is no need to wear a mask – although you are free to wear one if you are more comfortable doing so.

Inclusive: This event will be accessible to Christians of all denominations and to people of all faiths and none. All are welcome – just come as you are!

Free – with an opportunity for donations: There will be no charge for this event. However, ChaplaincyPlus relies on donations to deliver our vision to help people encounter the depth dimension of faith and life, so we are giving those who chose to do so the opportunity to support ChaplaincyPlus with a donation, when booking a place for this event, to enable our work to remain open to all.
