to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give

church group travel. Besides our set departures we can gladly
tailor make proposals for Catholic Churches, Protestant Churches,

church group travel experience is more than just a spiritual
or Christian pilgrimage, it is an opportunity to strengthen
the bonds of friendship and community. When your church group
travels, you have an opportunity to expand your faith, share
in worship, learn about the challenges faced by other congregations
around the world and deepen your own personal faith.
Pilgrimages. Pilgrimage Tours provide a special opportunity
for people to grow in their faith and deepen their knowledge
of key places of devotion. True Catholic Pilgrimages journey
with the giants of faith and our Catholic Tours bring groups
to places once traveled by important Bible personalities.
These spiritual pilgrimages allow you to walk with Christ
on the road to Calvary, to stand in some of the very places
where Peter and Paul proclaimed the truth of the resurrection.
You are able to relive the Pentecost experience in the Upper
Room or join with John the Baptist as he baptized Jesus in
the River Jordan. Take a spiritual pilgrimage to Rome with
Peter and Paul and visit the Mamertine Prison, the Forum and
the Colosseum, as well as spend time in prayer at the tombs
of St. Peter or St. Paul on your custom-designed Catholic
Tour. Experience the unique benefits and fellowship of church
group travel and design your spiritual pilgrimage today.
Tours. The Reformation can rightly be considered to be
the turning point in the history of Western civilization,
and there can be no more rewarding experience than studying
firsthand the inspiring lives of the great reformers on your
Christian pilgrimage. These heroes of faith were men of character
who stood firmly for their convictions, and often suffered
misunderstanding and persecution for them. All denominations
can benefit from Casterbridge's specialized Christian pilgrimage
programs that will enable everyone to have a deeper appreciation
for the remarkable history of his or her own religious heritage.
From Martin Luther to Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin to John
Knox, George Fox to John Wesley, Casterbridge Tours has unequalled
expertise in the diversity and depth of experience that can
be offered for your Christian pilgrimage.
Come stand before the church in Wittenberg where Luther nailed
his “95 Theses” to the door, or stand in the pulpit of Knox
or Wesley. Thrill to the hymnody of Charles Wesley in the
chapels of Methodism, or sit in the church of George Fox,
founder of the Quakers. Journey to the heart of Scottish spiritual
life, St. Andrews, as you learn about the nation’s ecclesiastical
history. Alternatively, travel to John Calvin’s “shining city
on a hill,” Geneva. We always aim to combine heritage visits
with service or meetings with local congregations or the opportunity
for your church choir to sing overseas during your Christian
pilgrimage. Examine the evolution of the Church of England,
or discover “The Great Cathedrals.”
a chronological journey, beginning at the Abbey of Iona, or
on Holy Island where the illuminated Lindisfarne Gospels were
written and culminate with visits to Canterbury Cathedral
and Westminster Abbey on your Christian pilgrimage. In doing
so, gain a unique insight into ecclesiastical history and
a greater appreciation of the artistic and architectural triumphs
of the church through the ages.
Pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The Holy Land has been described
as the crossroads where the three great religions of Judaism,
Christianity, and Islam meet. Each year millions of pilgrims
and church groups travel to the land of kings, prophets, and
apostles and each person believes that their biblical tour
of Israel is the most meaningful they have ever undertaken.
Marvel at the breathtaking natural beauty of the land that
produced the three great patriarchs of Judaism: Abraham, Isaac,
and Jacob on your biblical tour. Retrace the Exodus as you
journey from the Nile into the desert. Stand in the very space
where David confronted Goliath.
