Virtual Advent retreat in the Holy Land : starting Saturday 21 November

Do you want to do something different for Advent this year? If so perhaps this is something for you.

We would love to have you join us, your fellow pilgrims, on our virtual Advent Retreat. We will be exploring and sharing the Holy Land with each other in a near real time environment over 5 consecutive weekends.  You may dip into and join which ever tour or session is of interest to you. This means you can attend 1 or all the sessions and tours.


This will be an interactive online programme with the tour guides and lecturers based in the Holy Land.


From your home via Zoom (if in a group) or YouTube (individually)


A weekend will consist of 3 main components:

  • An online tour with our own tour guide to some of the most significant sites in Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethlehem and the Judean Desert.  
  • A lecture by renowned Jewish and Christian Biblical Scholars on the Advent Biblical events and happenings
  • A spiritual reflection on how these places, events or scriptures are relevant to us today!


The online tours will be on Saturday’s from 14.00-15.30 CET. 

The lectures will cover the lectures, discussions and reflections from CET

To round off each weekend of activities, there will be an opportunity of spiritual reflection – either individually or in a group on the relevance of what we have learnt and heard.
