Walk across the Holy Land virtually and help get Christian communities back on their feet.

Sign up for the challenge here

Last year, many of you rallied to raise funds to keep children in their schools during the pandemic.

This year, to complement our work in healthcare, family support, education and housing, we’re asking how we can create a sustainable and hopeful future for these communities, especially their young people. 

Many Christians lost their jobs as pilgrimages and tourism ground to halt in the pandemic, while communities desperately need skilled individuals to fill key roles.

Could you walk alongside young people and help provide crucial training, giving them a stable future and a means to support their communities?

Take the Challenge: Walk from Nazareth to Bethlehem!

Raise funds for our vital work in the Holy Land by walking, running, cycling or swimming the 100-mile pilgrimage route from Nazareth to Bethlehem.

When? Starting after Easter, cover the miles by June 30th.

Who should take part? You! If you can’t walk, find your own way to cover the miles, or sponsor your church team!

How does it work?

  • Take part on your own or team up, and cover a few miles each day or week.
  • Share your fundraising page with family and friends, so they can sponsor you!
  • Log your progress on the virtual map and see where you’ve got to along the route. Have a look around with Google streetview!
  • Hear some unique inside stories from local Christian communities as you make your way to Bethlehem.

Get started today!

See everybody's progress

Donate to the Pentecost Challenge

Can’t take part this year? To support Christian communities as they rebuild, you can donate directly.

Just £34 could cover an electrician's training for a month, giving hope and a future to a young person and bringing much-needed skills to their community.

Donate today!

Thank you!


What we raise from this year's Pentecost Challenge will help us support vocational training, jobs and small family businesses, along with funding our wider work across the Holy Land. We'll use your gifts where they will have the greatest impact.
