Over the weekend a number of the pilgrims travelling together to the Holy Land in July visited Downside as part of the preparation for their trip.

Some of the practicalities of the pilgrimage were on the agenda, but the weekend was also an opportunity to get to know one another, and to pray in preparation.

The group gelled together very well. The pilgrimage promises to be a great (and hot!) one. We will visit many of the sites associated with the Old Testament and the life of Jesus. But it will not just be a church crawl – we will wade through Hezekiah’s tunnel, spend a night in a Bedouin camp and have the opportunity for some swimming and rafting.

If you are interested in attending the pilgrimage, there are still places left. Click here for more information and to book your place.
