Canon David Humphries conducts a pilgrimage to the Holy Land every year in May.  His first pilgrimage in 1995 was for his own parishioners; nowadays the spiritual journeys are open to all.

We invite you to browse through the site, see what we do on an eleven-day pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the Galilee.

On a spiritual journey to the land of Jesus, the Bible comes alive; 

our pilgrims say that they'll never read it in the same way again!

The Purpose of a Pilgrimage

Going on pilgrimage puts us in touch with the roots and realities of our faith in a spiritual and Spirit-filled way.  It is a journey for the soul as much as for the mind and body.  Walking in the footsteps of Jesus is one journey that perhaps many of us should take, because it is not simply about going on holiday, it is about experiencing true holy days on what is more than a journey.

The Leadership Team

Canon David Humphries has over twenty years' experience in leading pilgrimages to the Holy Land.  He has an in-depth knowledge of the land and its people and personally directs every aspect of the pilgrimage from planning to completion.  David often engages other clerical colleagues to support his own pastoral skills, biblical knowledge and spiritual insight.

The Pilgrimage Facilitators

To ensure the best possible experience for pilgrims, David uses the services of McCabe Pilgrimages of London, which is an ATOL protected company.  This specialist company makes all the travel and accomodation arrangements and facilitates the specific requirements of each pilgrimage group.  The hotels used in the Holy Land are always of a high standard with the emphasis on comfort, location, good food and friendly, helpful staff.

The Next Pilgrimage: May 2019

A Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is scheduled for 14-24 May 2019.
