Leading Your Own Tour
Are you an enthusiastic, mature member of your community? Do you dream of a visit the holylands? If the answer is yes then keep reading! With a little bit of organization (and our years of experience) you could take a group of your community members to visit some of the most meaningful sites to Christianity. Your chance for a journey of a lifetime. Many have said that their 10 day pilgrimage was worth years of bible study. Seeing the land of the bible with fellow parishioners is an incomparable spiritual experience and you could play a vital part.
What You Can Do
Recruit a spiritual leader – this will set the spiritual tone and theme of your pilgrimage and is of utmost importance. Ideally this individual will be a charismatic, outgoing person who loves Christianity, travel and people. This individual should be a fairly well know individual in your community – someone people want to spend time with.
Set the date – once the date is set you can promote the pilgrimage as reality. This is not a dream – this is actually happening.
Plan ahead – The best is to plan a year ahead. This allows you ample time to promote the trip and us ample time to secure the best rates, itineraries and guides.
Promote – consistently and positively in your community and even reach out to neighbouring or affiliated parishes. Have information evening and send out updates. Let everyone know that the group is growing – this will cause a snowball effect and more people will book and pay their deposit.
Reading– find those meaningful passages in the bible and plan your visit. Choose the hymns and psalms you would like to include in the worship sessions. Involve fellow pilgrims in creating the spiritual program.
