Westminster Holy Land Pilgrimage 2021

Next year's Diocesan Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is planned to run from 22nd to 30th November 2021

This page will be updated with information about booking when it is available.

 

What Impact is COVID having on the Holy Land?

At 7.30pm on Thursday 26 November. Peter Rand, FHL's Vice Chairman and Executive Trustee, is running a session on Zoom. He has visited the Holy Land on around 25 occasions in the last 10 years and is in regular contact the FHL Bethlehem office, the local FHL Committee and other partners including the Latin Patriarchate, the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem and the Pontifical Mission. He would like to share with you and take questions on the reality of life with COVID for our Christian brothers and sisters in the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan, as we approach Christmas - a very different experience to ours in the UK.
Please email Peter at peter.rand@friendsoftheholyland.org.uk and he will send you the link to access the meeting. If you are unable to make the meeting on 26 November, which is mainly for people in London, then you are very welcome to join one of other similar meetings on other days leading up to Christmas/ Here is the full list:

*Thursday 26 November at 7.30pm - London

*Monday 30 November at 7.30pm - Worcestershire

*Wednesday 2 December at 7.00pm - Warwickshire

*Thursday 3 December at 7.00pm - Yorkshire

*Wednesday 9 December at 7.00pm - Oxfordshire

*Monday 14 December at 7.00pm - Staffordshire

*Tuesday 15 December at 7.00pm - South East

*Thursday 17 December at 7.00pm - Channel Islands

*Friday 18 December at 7.00pm - Shropshire


The meeting will last around one hour and Peter will be pleased to take questions; hence a series of smaller meetings to allow more questions, rather than one national event.

At 10am on Saturday 5 December, FHL are organizing a live cookery demonstration by zoom of a traditional Palestinian Christmas meal, prepared by the ladies at St. Martha's House, a Day Care Centre in Bethlehem, supported by FHL. Again, please email Peter who will send you the link.
