PILGRIMAGE TO THE HOLY LAND

Dates: 08 – 16 September 2020  

Package price  - £1,735.00 per person sharing

‘Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.’ Psalms 122:2

This unforgettable experience, our pilgrimage journey will follow in the footsteps of Jesus in Galilee and Jerusalem. We will stay at the Sea of Galilee for 4-nights; visiting Capernaum, the fishing village which became the centre of Our Lord’s ministry, alongside other places associated with the events of the Gospel including the Mt of Beatitudes, Mt Tabor, Cana & Nazareth. Picture yourself sailing in a boat like the disciples on the Sea of Galilee (“And Jesus said to them, follow me and I will make you become fishers of men” Mark 1:17).

During our 4-nights in Jerusalem, we will retrace Jesus’ footsteps from Bethany to Gethsemane.  We will see our Lord’s birthplace in Bethlehem & have communion at the empty tomb where Jesus rose from the dead (“He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay” Matthew 26:6). Enjoy guided visits of Jericho, Ein Karem, Masada and find time for some relaxation at the Dead Sea.

We hope many will want to join on this unique spiritual journey through the lands of the Bible.  By praying together and reading from the Scriptures in the various places where it happened, you will get a closer look at the life of Jesus Christ and His mission of redemption.  At the end of this tour two things will most certainly be changed, you, and your understanding of the Bible!

We very much look forward to making this pilgrim journey together.
