FAPA - TUNISIA PILGRIMAGE TOUR - arranged by Friends of the Anglican Province of Alexandria
In the steps of North Africa’s Christian giants: Tertullian, Cyprian, Augustine
Tunisia is a land where dramatic events shaped ancient history - the superpowers of Carthage and Rome clashed in three Punic Wars which determined the course of Western history. Lasting more than 100 years, the conflict ultimately resulted in the destruction of Carthage and assured Roman ascendancy. Later, Christian intellectual giants, such as Tertullian, Cyprian and Augustine, wrote extensively to promote the Christian faith and godly discipleship. Join us to explore the ruins of the Roman era in the beautiful, verdant North African countryside. Travel from the ruins of Carthage itself to the magnificent Roman cities and monuments of Roman Tunisia: the amphitheatre at El Djem, the beautiful, remote site of Dougga and vast intricate mosaics. During our tour we will visit the stunning cliff-top village of Sidi Bou Said and spend a full day with the Anglican/Episcopal church members of St. George’s, Tunis.
This private tour has been arranged for Friends of the Anglican Province of Alexandria supporting Anglican/Episcopal Churches in Egypt, North Africa and the Horn of Africa. The Church across the eight countries of the Province is thriving and growing, despite the many challenges within the region. Faithful, prayerful support is an important factor. FAPA’s mission is to help the Province realise its goals through prayer and financial support, and by sending people to serve and encourage the four dioceses.
