‘Pilgrimage invites us to notice what we are holding too tightly to, so we might release ourselves into the current of life.’ Christine Valter Painter

Dean of St George’s College, Jerusalem
Follow the journey that Jesus’ first disciples made through the Holy Land. Its focus is more devotional than the longer Palestine of Jesus course, while still covering all the major sites.
“The Palestine of Jesus course combines biblical and historical studies with pilgrimage to selected sites connected with Jesus’ life, ministry, death, and resurrection.”
Sharing Perspectives: Jews, Muslims and Christians: Three Faiths in Conversation. In this course, Jews, Christians and Muslims from the UK and Canada will live and journey together as an interfaith community at St. George’s College, Jerusalem.
The Holy Land and the Arts. The Holy Land is a powerful theme in much Western art, but the land itself preserves a rich heritage of religious art from the Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions.
Encounter the rich and inspiring stories from the women in the Bible whilst standing on the sacred landscapes of the Holy Land.
I am pleased that you have found your way to the website for St George's College, Jerusalem.
St George’s is situated just ten minutes walk from Damascus Gate in the heart of the holy city of Jerusalem. It is a wonderful and well-appointed location for short-term pilgrimages, study, interfaith conversations and reconciliation programmes. Our courses weave together time at sacred sites all over the Holy Land, with daily worship in the College and in local churches and incorporates reflective conversations during the fellowship of community meals. People from all over the world join our programmes as they seek to encounter Christ on their study pilgrimage. I am pleased to invite you to experience this for yourself and if you have been before to sign up to a follow-up course.
You are welcome to join our community of learning. Your faith will be deepened and your life enriched by the experiences you will enjoy in and through St George's College.
The Very Revd Richard Sewell, Dean of St. George’s College
