An Invitation to All to Join a Spiritual Journey

Are you inspired by the outdoors?
Based in Pembrokeshire, the Christian organisation Journeying is a team of men and women from all denominations and walks of life. We are always pleased to hear from people interested in discovering more about journey leadership with Journeying.
For more than 30 years Journeying has been taking people on holiday in small informal groups to places on the edge – island, hill, shore.
Travelling in a spirit of pilgrimage our purpose is to provide inspiring holidays that enable people to venture out, leave the everyday and connect with God in creation, in each other and in ourselves.
Our focus tends to be within the UK and Ireland, and since 1988 we have taken people to most corners of these wild and beautiful islands.
There is an underlying Celtic spirituality threaded through all that we do – the worship and rhythm of the day, creating community and hospitality, and seeing God in all things.
Ours is a spirituality fed by the outdoors; by hills, mountains and walking.
Holidays may be on a ‘self-cater as a group’ basis using our own house, or perhaps in a small hotel or retreat house where catering is provided.
We tailor each trip using the best of our wide experience to create a time away that, we believe, is unique.
Even though we are a Christian organisation (and perhaps because of it too) we welcome people of all traditions, of other faiths and none.
Journeying is a non-profit-seeking organisation. Leaders plan as well as lead holidays. All are volunteers. Despite our wide separation geographically, there is a real community feel among the team – we are if you like, a dispersed community. Collaboration and sharing are very important.
