We have regular weekly walks linked to our Community Hub Cafe every Tuesday. The walks leave from the front of St Jude’s church at 10:30 to take a gentle walk around the local parks and return to the Community Hub for more conversation over a cuppa. This is all part of our links with the Get Active initiative that invites people to join in walks taking place around the city at various times and places each week.


A series of walks have been put together as a means of getting fit, working off any post-holiday excesses and looking again at God’s creation. The walks offer a variety of starting days, distances and geography with the focus being more on fellowship and chat than mileage or difficulty.

These walks will leave church at 09.30 and will go ahead no matter the weather!! The accent will not be on “yomping” but on looking around and enjoying the company and views.  The walk will finish at a local hostelry to replenish salts …

If you are able to go on any of these walks, then please contact me a few days before the date in case of transport problems, weather or other queries. (Details at the end of the page)

Clothing and Equipment

You should never completely trust a weather forecast, even in the summer, and so it is suggested that the following minimum amount of kit is either worn or carried:

  • Stout shoes or trainers or wellies
  • Warm jersey / sweatshirt
  • Hat and gloves (in wintry conditions)
  • Waterproof Jacket plus trousers if possible
  • Lunch/Snack / chocolate and water
  • Small rucksack – to put this lot in
  • Rehydration tokens – beer money!
