Gaza Ceasefire Pilgrimage Walk – Canberra

May 4 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

This lent (covering both western and eastern calendars), a global movement is walking in prayerful solidarity with the people of Gaza, calling for a ceasefire.

The pilgrimages spanning 173 cities in 19 countries, have been organised by Christian groups and leaders in response to the calls of Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land and the diaspora asking for support from fellow Christians across the world.

The pilgrimage symbolically mirrors the walk from Gaza city to Rafah which Palestinians have been forced to take because of Israel’s military assaults and forced evacuations.
The Canberra GCP walk will begin at Mt Ainsley at 4am and will finish at 4pm with Joint prayers on Federation Mall in front of Parliament House.

Register for the walk here https://palestinianchristians.org.au/canberra-pilgrimage/

LEG 1: Mt Ainsley to Canberra Mosque

LEG 2: Canberra Mosque to the Australian Center Christianity and Culture (ACCC)

LEG 3: ACCC to Regatta Point lookout

Leg 4: Regatta Point lookout to Old Parliament House
