How to Join CSJ

Here is all the information you need about joining the CSJ.

Why join?

By joining the CSJ, you will be contributing to our work in support of the Santiago pilgrimage; website, guides, face to face advice at our office, events, running two pilgrim refuges and general advocacy of all the pilgrim routes across Europe to Santiago and of the spirit of pilgrimage.

You will receive our quarterly Bulletin free, and be entitled to our Pilgrim Passport free when you make your pilgrimage.  You will also be able to borrow books from our Library, and slides from our slide library. In addition CSJ members are offered a 15% discount by Cotswold Outdoor (details of the discount code will be sent with your membership pack).

By maintaining your membership after you have made your pilgrimage, you will continue to support our work, and thus give something back to the pilgrimage.  It is also a good way to stay in touch with other pilgrims and all things pilgrimage-related.
