This trip is very different to a traditional pilgrimage to the Holy Land. We will visit some of the holy sites, but the emphasis is more upon meeting the people and hearing of their lives. This will include doing some voluntary work. The focus is upon the Christian Community of the Holy Land – though in order to understand their situation we will also be meeting Muslims and Jews. We will share in the “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity” events in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.

For some people in the group, this might be their first experience of visiting Israel Palestine and we will do our best to present a comprehensible picture of the complexities of this land. For others, this might follow experiencing a traditional pilgrimage and fulfil the desire to understand the situation at a greater depth.
