Holy Land Living Stones Pilgrimages

Come With Us to Meet the Living Stones
The Church in the Holy Land!
“I too will go to seek the Lord.” –Zechariah 8:21

Join our Living Stones Pilgrimage to meet the Arab Christian Palestinians, who have maintained a continual living witness in the land of our Saviour’s birth and have helped preserve the holy sites sacred to all of Christianity. These living witnesses of Christ’s historic presence in the Holy Land can help us understand the Bible by giving us a deeper understanding of its context.  Arab Christians are ideally placed as bridge builders and provide a buffer between the growth of both Jewish and Islamic fundamentalism in the region. They are the Living Stones who with their hearts and hands give evidence of the faith to which the physical stones of the Holy Land bear witness.

With this HCEF Living Stones Pilgrimage, you will be far more than a visitor to the Holy Land. Through our program, you will travel as a guest of the Church of Jerusalem – which means you will receive a warm welcome in all the Christian Churches in the Holy Land, and a firsthand perspective on lives and values of Christians in the Holy Land, and the unique challenges and opportunities they face.
 
Living Stones Pilgrimages will allow you to:
  1. Meet and break bread with the Arab Christians referred to in the Bible as “Living Stones”
  2. Delve deeply into your Christian heritage and build solidarity with Christians in the Holy Land
  3. Secure Christianity in the Holy Land for future generations
  4. Tailor your pilgrimage as your group needs
  5. Be guided every step of the way by a Christian guide fluent in English.

Truly, once-in-a-lifetime, a spiritual experience awaits. Through our Living Stones Pilgrimage Program, your life will change forever. Begin to plan your unforgettable journey to the Holy Land. Living Stones Pilgrimage Testimonies: Unforgettable Spiritual Journey Experiences

Living Stones Pilgrimage Testimonies: Unforgettable Spiritual Journey Experiences Example of a day in the pilgrimage: “Today we will travel the path of Christ from the Mount of Olives and Gethsemane, into Jerusalem’s old city. We will travel the Via Dolorosa (the “Way of Pain”) to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead.”
