A Pilgrimage to the Holy Land – 14th to 23rd June 2020
It is always very moving to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, there is so much to see and experience and learn together. St Jerome said: ‘Five gospels record the life of Jesus. Four you will find in books and the one you will find in the land they call Holy. Read the fifth gospel and the world of the four will open to you.’
I invite you to come and know this for yourselves whether you are new to the Holy Land or have been many times before; there are always new sights and sounds to reflect upon.
Reading the gospels will never be the same again and by visiting the Holy Land we are standing in solidarity with our brothers and sisters there too. To have the chance to meet the ‘living stones’, the local Palestinian and Israeli Christians who are the ongoing, living church in the region, is humbling.
Our pilgrimage will include the sites where the most important events in Our Lord’s life and ministry took place: in Jerusalem and the surrounding area and further north in Galilee. We hope that if you have never been on pilgrimage to the Holy Land before you will choose to join us and, if you have been before, we welcome you back. Our journey is a life changing and well as faith changing experience.
I invite you to journey with me and to share in this great opportunity to see those places we read of in the Scriptures.

Inter-Faith and Exploratory Tours to India
Revd Mark has for many years organised a variety of different tour and pilgrimages across the Indian Sub-Continent, a country where he has lived, worked and traveled extensively.
These tours and pilgrimages each have a theme or a focus: some are specifically designed to allow those travelling to meet with both local Christians and members of a wide variety of other faiths, e.g. Hindu, Sikh, Muslim, Jain, Buddhist, etc., others are focused on the historical or cultural aspects of the diverse Indian sub-continent.
Revd Mark’s next tour is a cultural tour to both North and South India, from the Deserts and Palaces of Rajasthan down to the Tropical Backwaters of Kerla, and runs from 3rd to 17th February 2020
(Update: This tour is almost sold out – only one Single/Double/Twin Space Available)
