With Father Martin & Father Mervyn
21-30 October 2013
Travel with us to the Holy Land and let the Bible come alive as we meet the people and see the places of the gospel stories. On our journey, we will visit places of pilgrimage and also meet the local Christian community, offering them our support and encouragement as we hear of the challenges they face.
Our pilgrimage is planned for October, when the weather should be warm but not too hot for touring. Visits will include the Sea of Galilee,
Capernaum, Nazareth, Jericho, Jerusalem and Bethlehem with free time for relaxation and reflection. We will walk along the Via Dolorosa.
The Holy Land is unique in offering so many highlights and contrasts in such a compact area. We are confident that this pilgrimage will not only be an enjoyable experience, but also a spiritually enriching one.
The cost of this tour is £1,740 sharing a twin-bedded room with private facilities.
We stay in two family owned and managed hotels. In Jerusalem, the three star Golden Walls Hotel overlooks the Old City walls and is within walking distance of the Holy Sepulchre. In Tiberias, we stay at the four star Ron Beach Hotel in a wonderful situation right on the lakeside. The tour is on a full-board basis with buffet breakfast, lunch and table d'hôte evening meal included daily.
Touring is in air-conditioned coaches and we will be accompanied by a local guide who will share leadership responsibilities and look after the formalities of hotel check-ins etc.
All entrance fees are included as is a contribution of £45 to the group gratuity fund.
