Join hosts Dr. David and Colette Squires for 11 days in London and Paris, exploring the arts, culture and worship life of these vibrant world-class cities. Encounter the Holy in sacred spaces such as London’s St. Paul’s Cathedral and Westminster Abbey, and Paris’ Sainte-Chappelle and the Basilica Sacre Coeur in Montmartre. Feast on the arts in the world’s great theatres, opera houses, museums and galleries.

  • Uncover the stories London has to tell — past and present
  • Sit in a Paris café talking about God and culture
  • Travel with people like you who want to explore faith and art

Short morning lectures prepare you for the exploration of museums, galleries, and historic sites. Later in the day enjoy London's renowned West End theatres and Paris' cafe culture. Along the way you’ll make new friends, and enjoy life and laughter. With some free time for shopping and… you decide!

Past Participants Comments

  • “I could sit there and say “wow” in God’s presence in ways I haven’t done in North America.” (J.G., at St. Paul’s Cathedral)
  • “There have been very few times in my life that theatre has changed the way I view the world. This was one of those times.” (J.F., actor and theatre student, at Shakespeare’s Globe)
  • “So much emotion, history, love, loss, and hope can sit within the walls of an Abbey that has stood in one spot for hundreds of years. Westminster is still a timeless jewel in a dazzling city.” (J.F., at Westminster Abbey)
