The Synod Ecumenical Officer, Sally Thomas, is spending three days with the Christian Aid walkers on pilgrimage from Bethlehem to Egypt which you have probably received information about directly but it’s pasted below in case not. The photo shows her at the end of her first day of walking, still smiling. Some of the others have just completed Day 10.
Sally says: “With Aled Edwards, CEO of Cytûn who is doing the whole journey, I’m walking in memory of Gethin Abraham-Williams who died recently. I’m hoping that some in our Synod, either as churches or individuals, will sponsor this with donations to Christian Aid.

There are more than 65 million refugees in our world today. In fear, they flee conflict, natural disasters and extreme poverty. In hope, they seek a safe place to call home.
This Christmas, Christian Aid Cymru will walk from Bethlehem in Carmarthenshire to Aifft (Egypt) in Denbighshire in solidarity with these people, our brothers and sisters. It will be a sponsored walk, with donations going towards the work Christian Aid does to fight poverty generally, which includes vital work in supporting refugees in many parts of the world.
We invite you to join us on the walk – either for the whole journey or for specific legs – and help us draw attention to the world’s refugee crisis and raise funds for Christian Aid’s work.
