Letter to the Galatians

Galatians is the first book of the New Testament to be written, penned by Paul to the churches which he had established in the area.

The Christian communities were less than two years old at the time of the letter, and they had fallen back into the ways of the world. Rather than enjoying the freedom they had in Jesus, they were trapping themselves in religious rules.

Bishop Donald has released four half-hour video talks about Galatians, and this is your chance, after you’ve watched the entire set of videos, to attend a live summary from the Bishop before posing your own questions. Join us for a celebration of a letter which is ‘Hugely liberating and deeply joyful.’

Book your FREE place on Eventbrite here.

This event will take place on Zoom and details will will be emailed after booking.

Any queries please contact nuala.salter@peterborough-diocese.org.uk

A 10 day Pilgrimage to Israel and Palestine

Following in the Footsteps of Jesus led by The Rt Revd Donald Allister

I hope you can join me for my next Holy Land pilgrimage. I confidently expect that it will be:

  • exhilarating
  • exhausting
  • faith-building


For those who have been with me before, this pilgrimage will be different:

  • a full day longer with more activities
  • two bases instead of three
  • starting with Jerusalem and the south, finishing with Galilee and the north


For those who have not been on such a pilgrimage, please note:

  • this is a Christian pilgrimage, and we will worship together, singing, praying, reading the Bible, and celebrating Holy Communion every day
  • you need to be physically fit, able to negotiate moderate hill walking, uneven surfaces, and many steps
  • we will be well fed with lovely Mediterranean / Middle Eastern food, but we cannot always guarantee to provide special diets.

We will of course abide fully by any public health restrictions that are in place as we travel. Do be assured that Lightline will give full refunds if the pilgrimage has to be cancelled for any reason.

We are limited to 50 pilgrims, so get your booking in quickly

Bishop of Peterborough
