EventsVancouver Area Gaza Ceasefire Pilgrimage

Saturday, May 11 @ 3:30 pm - 7:00 pm

THIS SATURDAY MAY 11TH join members of Salal + Cedar Watership Discipleship Community, Open Way Community Church, Christians for a Free Palestine, and other people of faith including anti-Zionist Jewish folks on a pilgrimage to pray for liberation, justice, and lasting peace in Palestine.
We will travel 33km by skytrain, bus, and foot from Surrey Central Skytrain Station all the way to UBC MacInnes Field, to visit the People’s University encampment–the approximate distance from Gaza City to Rafah.

The first two stops of the pilgrimage will have an ecumenical Christian focus on complicity in the ongoing genocide, prayers for repentance and the call to solidarity. Our final station will focus on the land and ecocide in Gaza followed by an interfaith walk through Pacific Spirit Park in silent contemplation and prayer.

You are welcome to join the pilgrimage at

3:40pm Surrey Central Station – Gather in the courtyard in front of Central City Mall, across 102 Avenue. At approximately 4:00pm we will board the Expo Line Train toward Waterfront
