Programme of Events and Local Groups

London 

  • Saturday Office Open Days – In addition to our Open Days held every Thursday, we sometimes open up our office, bookshop and library on Saturdays too.  You will be able to purchase guides for walkers and cyclists on various routes of the Way through Western Europe, as well as the all-important Pilgrim Passport.  There will be experienced pilgrims on hand to advise, recommend and reassure! Whether you’re planning a walk, or have just returned from the Camino and want to share your experience, Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to share knowledge and memories with like-minded people.  You’re also able to become a member of the CSJ for those wanting to provide and receive continued support.

Next Saturday Open Days 7th April and 19th May 2018.
