A Christian Tour through England

Tour Highlights

London – Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, Bible tour of the British museum, Christian art in the National Gallery

Canterbury Cathedral– where Christianity gained a firm foothold on English soil 1,400 years ago with the arrival of St Augustine. The fine cathedral built over many centuries embraces all three styles of Gothic architecture and holds a unique place in the history of the Church of England.

Coventry Cathedral – This cathedral’s architecture has an extraordinary and very powerful story behind it, one of ruin and rebuilding. Today the cathedral has an equally remarkable ministry of reconciliation which was also born out of its traumatic World War II destruction and rebirth. See the ruins of the old cathedral and the modern cathedral.

York – Visit York Minster, one of the most beautiful gothic cathedrals in England and the dramatic ruins of Fountains Abbey which is set in the breathtakingly beautiful Yorkshire countryside. Hear about the story of the dissolution of the monasteries.

Durham – Another wonderful cathedral city, its cathedral is a fine example of Norman architecture described by Nikolus Pevsner as ‘ one of the great architectural experiences of Europe’. It has a dramatic setting high above the River Weir.

Cambridge – A major centre of the Reformation.

Ely Cathedral – a cathedral with much Christian symbolism in the architecture.

Evensong – option to attend Evensong at one or more of the cathedrals
