PILGRIMAGES


Two highly succesful pilgrimages have been organised in recent years, one to the Holy Land in 2013, and one to Turkey in 2015.  Both were led by the Revd. Alison Newman, then Associate Rector in the Parish of Farnborough.  Follow the links on the right of this page to read the stories and view many photos.

Alison has now moved on, to St. Marks Biggin Hill but will be leading a further pilgrimage to Jordan in 2019. You can view tour information below. For further information contact Alison Newman direct, contact details are in the brochures.

A Journey through Jordan

10th - 18th October 2019

A pilgrimage in the footsteps of Jacob, Moses, Joshua, Elijah, John the Baptist, the Wise Men and, of course, Jesus and his disciples! We begin in Amman including a visit to Jerash, one of the best-preserved Roman towns in the world. We travel to lost desert castles, the amazing rock-cut city of Petra and the stunningly beautiful desert landscape of Wadi Rum. Petra is the high point of any visit to Jordan, but the country offers so much more, including numerous sites of biblical importance: we will also visit Mount Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land, and Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Jesus was baptised by John.

During our travels, we will have the opportunity to meet with local people: Brother Andrew at the Holy Land Institute for the Deaf in Salt , the Bedouin living in tents with herds of camels, sheep and goats giving us a rich insight into their traditions and culture. We will end the pilgrimage in Aqaba by the Red Sea.

Come and join us on what promises to be an unforgettable and profoundly rewarding spiritual experience.
