Pilgrimage to Greece in St Paul's Steps 13 - 20 May 2019
Derek is leading a pilgrimage in Greece next year, following Paul through the country, stopping off at key places on his second missionary journey, including Athens and Corinth. This is a great way of understanding the ‘man and his message’. Visiting places of worship, including the amazing monasteries at Meteora, we will also learn about this stream of Christianity. There will be an introductory evening at 8pm on Thursday 26 July with Derek and Scott Robertson. There are brochures at the back of church with more information.
