My name is Pastor Emiliah Muteweri. I am one of the Pastors at Arise Metropolitan Assembly in Hornchurch, London.
I am inviting you to join us on a very special 6th Pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
Visiting the Holy Land is life -transforming as you vividly walk in the footsteps of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
The memories are unforgettable.
We will learn about the history and roots of our Christian faith and this will take the roots of your faith deeper!
Visiting the historical sites is enlightening and creates an excellent environment for reflection and thankfulness.
We will enjoy great fellowship, worship and prayers.
We will also enjoy the sunshine and the delicious Mediterranean food.

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.
