15 members of our West Wight Churches were joined by our West Wight Mission Rector, the Revd. Jackie Maw on a glorious morning as 4 groups of people walked around different areas of our Totland  Parish – stopping at points where we prayed a blessing on places and people.

One Group prayed a blessing for the following places and people at points on their route:

  • Eden House Care Home and Residents.
  • The Turf Walk.
  • for the magnificent scenes across the Solent towards the mainland and Hurst Castle.
  • Sentry Mead Hotel and guests.
  • St Winifred’s and the residents.
  • for the safety of the worksite and on-going restoration of Totland Bay Pier and new Cafe.
  • for the workmen who said they were striving to achieve a 2 week completion schedule!
  • The village centre and War Memorial.
  • 2 Community Support Officers (Walking the Beat!!) in Totland.

Multiply that by 4 and Totland received quite a blessing that morning!


















There are other opportunities ahead to join a walk and be a blessing on your local community.
