TURKEY PILGRIMAGES

St Paul’s journeys across Asia and into Europe followed with our pilgrimage offerings to Turkey. After his return from Greece, Paul set out again straight away, this time through Asia. Turkey features strongly in the development of the early church, for it was here we see the first churches founded and visited by St Paul on his missionary journeys: Ephesus (Selçuk), Smyrna (Izmir), Pergamum, Sardis (Sart), Philadelphia, Thyatira and Laodicea. The Seven Churches of Asia form a strong theme around which an exciting tour can be woven. Breathtaking scenery, beautiful coastlines and amazingly preserved classical sites are all contained in this one inspiring tour.
