In all of our church tours, pilgrimages and spiritual trips
we try to ensure that our pilgrims spend more time reflecting,
praying and getting to know the setting where Jesus walked,
talked and healed. We also cater for school groups and have
organised school trips to Israel and Egypt for schools in
South Africa. Our destinations include Israel, Turkey, Jordan,
Greece, France and Italy. We have a site deciated to pilgrimages
and offer packages here as a sample of previous itineraries.

ancient practice of pilgrimage—a journey taken for spiritual
enrichment—is being rediscovered by Christians around the
world. In the past, such trips often took many months and
entailed great physical risk. Today’s pilgrimages may be taken
by airplane or car, but the goal is the same as that of seekers
trudging down a deserted path centuries ago: like them, we
set out on the road to hear the voice of God more clearly,
hoping that as we journey our hearts may be opened and our

Christians go on pilgrimage they travel somewhere that is
special to their faith. It might be to places written about
in the Bible, such as where Jesus and the early Christians
lived. It may be a place where a miracle once happened or
a saint is buried. Often the journey itself matters as much
as being at the special place, because it gives the ‘pilgrim’
– the person on the journey – time to pray and think. Destinations
include the Holy Land - Israel and Jordan, Turkey, Greece
as well as to healing sites such as Lourdes.
Pilgrimage is an important part of spiritual life for many
Christians. By taking the time to go on pilgrimage, people
can leave behind everyday concerns from back home and spend
time in the presence of God as they travel to a place with
special meaning. People have always gone on pilgrimage for
many reasons – perhaps to say sorry to God for something they
had done wrong (penance), or because they were ill and wanted
God to heal them. They might be looking for an answer to a
problem or difficulty, or they might be looking for peace
or healing. Over the years, places have become special for
different reasons, and Christians decide to visit them to
become closer to God in these special places.
