No, you don’t have to be a member of any specific congregation or church. Our Christian Pilgrimages are non-denominational. However if you are a member or a follower of a specific Christian tradition; be it Catholic, Orthodox, Anglican, other Protestant or Charismatic Churches, you could join a ‘Tradition based’ Pilgrimage.
All pilgrimages are accompanied by one or more competent ‘Pilgrimage Coordinator’ who will escort the group from Australia. Upon arrival to the Holy Land the group will be met by a member of the local hand-picked team of qualified and licensed ‘tour guides’. Together with the co-ordinators, the guides will be accompanying the group throughout the stay, providing detailed explanation and commentary.
Chaplains and spiritual leaders may also join selected Pilgrimages.
Most of the Pilgrimage programmes do not involve strenuous physical activity. We encourage you to discuss the specific programme and any special needs with your delegated Pilgrim Coordinator prior to departure.
Your Pilgrimage coordinator will advise you whether there are any visa requirements depending on the passport/nationality that you hold and will assist in the process of obtaining your visas.
At Christian Pilgrimage , we believe in absolute transparency and there will be no hidden costs. Your Pilgrimage coordinator will provide with plain English detailed documentation to avoid any surprises. All this will be provided before you make your final booking.
