The vision for Clifton Spiritual Pathway was a community project that inspired hope. This, both during its creation, and also as a lasting inspiration for the Clifton Community. 

The mosaic tiles form a pathway. The individual letters spelling out the inspiring Biblical verse, so that people can follow the path physically, figuratively and spiritually! 

The Bible verse was chosen in the spring of 2008, incorporating the message of hope at a time of national economic decline and uncertainty. However the message is not   limited to this, as it can inspire hope in all aspects of life, to all people at all times.

The project took 8 years to complete and has involved over 100 people from start to finish.  The majority of the tiles were created, grouted and finished by the people of Clifton.

This project could not have been completed without the time and dedication volunteered by so many people from our community. 

Clifton Spiritual Pathway was designed by Helen Bower. The project was managed by Helen Bower and coordinated by Lorna Siddons with the help and support of Clifton Parish Church.

The Bible verse on Clifton Spiritual Pathway


Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength – they will soar on wings like eagles.  Isaiah 40:31


As you tread the Clifton Spiritual Pathway - pause to consider the spiritual pathways in life. We have choices. This verse invites us to put our hope, trust and faith in the Lord God who loves us.


It is a promise. God says your strength will be renewed. This is an inner resilience to face all that life throws at you. And there's more! In this lovely phrase about eagles soaring – is God's promise of joy.


We hope you will enjoy the Clifton Spiritual Pathway. It leads you to the church door, to belong, be loved and be blessed as part of the local church family. Our mission is to bring in, build up, equip and send out. You are welcome!

Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength – they will soar on wings like eagles. The truth of these words can become your experience! May you find this on your pathway through life.
