Christian Travel that Helps Fellow Christians
Lightline Pilgrimages is a UK holiday company that is dedicated to helping the plight of fellow Christians living under difficult circumstances in the Holy Land.
Comments Rene Silva, Director of Lightline Pilgrimages:
“We use Christian owned and run hotels, and use Christian owned companies for our ground arrangements wherever we can. The end result is a happy group of pilgrims who have not only had a fantastic holiday, but who can go home knowing that they have helped the Christian community in Israel.”
Lightline Pilgrimages arranges group travel to Israel throughout the year and they are usually led by some of the UK’s most respected bishops and rectors.
The next pilgrimage on the Lightline Pilgrimage calendar is a seven-night trip entitled Following in the footsteps of Jesus, departing on 16 June, and which will be led by The Revd Rob Marshall, a broadcaster on BBC Radios 4's Thought for the Day.
Highlights of the holiday will include the Sea of Galilee, Mount Tabor – traditionally associated with the Transfiguration – Cana, where Jesus famously turned the water into wine at a wedding, Nazareth, the town in which the Gospel story begins and where Jesus grew up, the Basilica of the Annunciation, all the holy sites of Jerusalem, Bethlehem – Jesus’s birthplace – and the Jordan valley – where John famously baptised Jesus.
The holiday costs from £1495 pp (two sharing) which includes flights, all land transportation, 7-nights’ half-board, all entrance fees and a tour leader.
