Journey to the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus

Led by The Revd. Peter and Carol Paine

Monday 9th - Monday 16th October 2017

Welcome to this pilgrimage to North Cyprus the home of Barnabas (Acts 4:36).

This was also the first port of call on Paul’s first missionary journey where he preached at Salamis (Day 2, Acts 13:5) and to which Barnabas and John Mark returned (Acts 15:39). We will stay in the picturesque port of Kyrenia and visit sites of Neolithic, Roman, Byzantine, Phoenician and Islamic interest situated on the coast and in the mountains.

There will be time for relaxation and refreshment.

We hope very much that you will be able to join us.

Peter & Carol Paine
