Walking in the Footsteps of Jesus, a tour of the Holy Land

Led by Pastor Julius Brown

Saturday 29th July - Saturday 5th August 2023

My fellow pilgrims in Christ, following our hugely successful tour to the beloved land of Israel in 2019, I openly extend this invitation to all, to join our next Pilgrimage tour in 2023.

As fellow believers, I highly recommend and encourage that you experience this life changing opportunity, and as you choose to walk in the footsteps of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, you will no doubt appreciate His power, His might, His mercies and ultimate sacrifice for our salvation! You will be visiting many key Biblical sites, whilst gaining local and traditional knowledge and also appreciate diverse cultural practices. I can only assure you, that your return home as individuals, will surely be of an increased spiritual growth and of a greater understanding, acceptance and appreciation of the Bible. May our Almighty God continue to be our constant companion, teacher, protector and deliverer as we strive to walk in His righteousness, along the narrow way.
God bless you as you join and participate in this journey.

Snr.Pastor/Prophet Julius Brown.

The standard international practice is to let rooms from midday to midday. However times do vary.

Day rooms are subject to availability/cost and should be arranged locally with the accommodation management.

“The trip to the Holy Land was an exciting time of learning, travelling and fellowship. The tour guide exceeded expectations and gave new insights in to the Word of God, which was made a lot clearer when we understood more of our Jewish roots. The Bible seems more relevant now and it’s becoming more important for me to watch Israel; the time clock of the world.”
