We aim to help transitioning in faith through the lifestages

The Coracle Trust is a charity based in Edinburgh that offers places of hospitality for pilgrims and navigators to share stories, cultivate learning and instil an openness towards this 'Christ of the road, this God of the high seas'*.

Throughout our lives, transitions require us to review what has become most significant and meaningful to us.  Whether triggered by loss, profound love or uncertainty we aim to reflect well upon our inner life and outer world through readings, art, poetry and metaphor.  Here we gather personal and collective work from within the Coracle community and of theologians, writers, poets and artists as they strive to providing maps for the wellbeing, maturity and faith development of individuals and communities.

We run groups and offer a large body of reflections and have started to issue Topic articles, collating and summarising  material from our gatherings.
