Clergy and laity throughout GNJ will be leaving on a nine day tour of England on July 19, 2017, to explore their roots in places associated with the life of John Wesley, founder of Methodism.
The trip will start with a visit to York where the highlight is a tour of Yorkminster Cathedral. There will be an opportunity to stroll “the Shambles,” a charming Old World market place or walk around the ancient city walls, perhaps visiting the castle. From York, the tour moves on to the home town of the Wesleys, Epworth. There, visitors will discover the childhood home of John and Charles Wesley; where they were raised with their many siblings by Samuel and Susannah Wesley. The Church of St. Andrew and Wesley Memorial Church will also be visited. Other highlights of the trip include visits to Oxford, Bath, Bristol, Coventry, Stratford upon Avon, Warwick Castle, the Cotswolds, Gloucester, and, of course London. Those who are interested can read the details of the itinerary in the brochure that has been sent to each pastor and church on the region. The tour has been designed to maximize opportunities for sightseeing, spiritual enrichment, and cultural learning in a group that assures a wonderful experience of fellowship and memory building.
The group members will be staying in first-class hotels and traveling in a deluxe motor coach. Two meals per day are included in the price of the trip The cost of the basic trip is just $3,598. Optional post tour extensions in London or to Ireland are also available.
Clergy who are taking groups from their churches have the opportunity to become tour hosts. Two units of Continuing Education credits are available as well as discounts for timely payments.
