“Once in a Lifetime…” Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Land – June 2021

As many of you will have noticed, I have become increasingly interested in the Scriptures in recent years and to that end travelled to the Holy Land last Summer. I was so overwhelmed by the experience of being in the places where the Lord had been that I quickly felt a desire to share the experience with others. Since coming back, therefore, I have been working with various travel firms to come up with a plan for a Parish Pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I have, as you will not be surprised to know, quite fixed ideas about how to approach this pilgrimage. I wanted good scheduled flights from Edinburgh, and I wanted to stay in specific hotels in both Galilee and Jerusalem. My idea being that, for most people, this will be a “once in a lifetime” trip and therefore I would prefer everything to be just right rather than cutting costs. The Pilgrimage will be in June 2021 and it will not be cheap, but that does give everyone time to save up. We will go for 11 days – which it just right. It will also be an (unashamedly) religious pilgrimage, the purpose of which will be for us all to grow closer to the Lord by following his footsteps. The indicative cost for 11 days, full board, staying in good hotels, and flying BA will be £2,155. I know it is expensive, but I think it will be worth it. If you are interested, please will you sign your name on the list at the back of the Church. Once we have an idea of numbers interested – we will have a preliminary meeting with the Tour Operator. There is no commitment until the time to pay a deposit. Think about it – I think it will be a wonderful time of grace…
