A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a very special event in the lives of many Christians.

An Embrace the Middle East Encounter Tour will give you the opportunity to visit places that would have been familiar to Jesus as well as those that have developed since, as a result of His life and ministry. You will meet with the ‘Living Stones’ – Christians who live and work in this beautiful but divided land and learn how they act as ‘salt and light’ in their communities.

You will see first hand some of the amazing work done by Embrace’s partners and learn something about their impact on the communities they serve. There will also be opportunity for worship and reflection and time for fun and relaxation too.

About the tour leaders
Su regularly leads groups visiting the Holy Land for pilgrimages, study tours, educational exchanges and olive harvesting trips, as part of her work as the Senior Regional Manager for Embrace the Middle East.

She will be responsible for organising the tour, day-to-day practicalities and will be on hand to answer your questions about the current political situation, the Embrace Partners that you will meet and the impact of both on people’s lives.

Stephen has lived and travelled widely in the Middle East, from Aswan to the Black Sea, first visiting the Holy Land as a teenager, studying in Jerusalem, then teaching English and being involved in archaeology there before working as Anglican Chaplain in Jordan and then Syria. He will be Chaplain to the group throughout the pilgrimage.
