The Scottish Christian Hillwalking Club was formed in 1984. It offers the opportunity for Christians to meet regularly to enjoy hillwalking and Christian fellowship. Members hail from across Scotland and other parts of the U.K. and come from a wide variety of occupations and church denominations. However anyone is welcome to come to join us on our walks.
What we do
The Club organises weekend meets about once a month. We also have a few day walks on a Saturday and an occasional mid-week walk or longer weekend. We walk mainly in Scotland and very occasionally go further afield. The level of walking varies from a day’s walking over several Munros, to a weekend on a Scottish island with its smaller hills. Please check the programme for information on events.
On weekend meets, the group normally gathers on the Friday night at a youth hostel, mountaineering club hut, Christian Centre or self-catering accommodation. We aim to have a time of informal worship together at some stage during weekends, and there is the option of attending a local church service on a Sunday, if there is one nearby.
If you can’t make a full weekend, it is often possible to come for the Saturday or Sunday only.
Prospective members are welcome to attend a couple of events to walk and meet current members before deciding whether or not to join the Club.
