A Baptist Twinning tour of the Holy Land

Led by the Rev Stuart Davison

Friday 10th - Saturday 18th May 2024

I am the Revd Stuart Davison and have been in Baptist ministry for over 40 years, both in the SE and in Liverpool. Latterly I have served as Regional Minister Team Leader for SEBA (South Eastern Baptist Association). It has been my privilege to visit Israel/Palestine several times, including taking groups of ministers and other church leaders there, where they have met the living stones as well as the dead ones – going to churches in the Association of Baptist Churches in Israel as well visiting the historic sites.

I look forward to providing you with this wonderful opportunity to experience the Holy Land and see the places where Jesus walked.

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.
