Programme of Events and Local Groups

London Office

  • 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
    Keep an eye on the News Section of our website for updates.
  • Regular Film Screenings: CSJ Offices, 27 Blackfriars Road, London SE1 8NY  The CSJ have set up quarterly film screenings of Lydia Bowman’s film, Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago, which is a documentary that follows six very different pilgrims on their journeys from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port in the foothills of the Pyrenees to Santiago.  It is an excellent source of inspiration and reflection, and well worth a watch.                                                                                                       All screenings at Christ Church adjoining the CSJ Office at 19:30.                                             Discounted rate for members £5.  Non members £8                                                                                           Next date:  Monday 4th December
