Reformation Tour – in the footsteps of Martin Luther – Sept 2017
In 2017 we travel to Germany to mark the 500th Anniversary of the start of the Protestant Reformation. When Martin Luther, a German priest and professor of theology, nailed his 95 Theses to the door of the church in Wittenberg in October 31, 1517, he rejected many of the contemporary teachings and corrupt practices of the Roman Catholic Church and initiated a schism.
Luther’s belief in the gift of God’s grace – salvation and subsequent eternal life – through faith in Jesus Christ alone found him in direct opposition to the Pope. Meanwhile Luther’s translation of the Bible into the vernacular made God’s word accessible to the wider public for the first time. With the use of the Gutenberg printing press his Protestant teachings spread rapidly across the Continent and onto England and Scotland leading to the formation of many Protestant and Evangelical churches.
Join us as our tour travels to the most important sites of Luther’s Reformation journey and takes in the three National Exhibitions staged to mark this important event. Come and be inspired…
