A wonderful tour of the Holyland

Led by Reverend Agatha Arthur-Bossoh

Sunday 22nd - Monday 30th November 2020

Dear friend,

I am delighted to welcome you on our trip to the historical and biblical- Holy Land of Israel from Sunday 22nd - Monday 30th November 2020.

For many, going on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a Christians dream.

For since Jesus’ time the Roman’s, Byzantines, Moslems, Turks and the British have all come and left their mark on this tiny land which is roughly the size of Wales.

This is not a vacation or a holiday, but a time of Spiritual Growth and Educational Experience.

The main aim of our trip to Israel is to learn and experience the places named in our Bible, to walk where Jesus walked, with your Bible as your guide book.

When we have stood together in the synagogue and the Temple area where He taught, and when we enter and view His empty tomb, surely, we will come home with a new grasp of the Bible and an added dimension to our faith.

Check your calendar and see if you can join our group in this wonderful experience.
God bless you even as you bless Israel by coming on this tour. (Gen.12:3).

Reverend Mrs Agatha Arthur-Bossoh. (0208 680 3178 / 07803 752 158)

Room Check In and Check Out Times
The standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday. However times do vary. Check-in times are usually between 2pm and 3pm, check-out times between 11am and 12 noon on the day of departure. Therefore, if you check-in immediately after a night flight this would normally count as one night’s accommodation. Similarly if your return flight is at night you will normally be required to vacate your room at 12 noon prior to leaving for the airport. Day rooms are subject to availability/cost and should be arranged locally with the accommodation management.
