Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

The Revd. Haydon Wilcox has taken groups every other year to the Holy Land since 1985. His pilgrimages are personally designed and spiritually led by him. Over the years hundreds have gained biblical knowledge and spiritual renewal from these pilgrimages. What makes his pilgrimages different is that he not only takes people to the traditional sites but provides the opportunity to explore places that the average pilgrim never sees. You will have the opportunity of meeting people that represent the whole religious and political spectrum, learning about the history, issues and challenges that people face and allowing you to form your own conclusions about how the ‘pain, injustices and lack of peace’ for all sides might be resolved.
