    Ministry overview

    The Kingfisher Project is a part of “Torchbearers International”, a non-denominational, international Christian organisation.

    We offer holidays/retreats and discipleship training programs within a Christian community aboard the “Encounter” our 90ft (27m) traditional gaff rigged schooner, as she sails among the majestic islands and rugged coastal areas of Greece.

    Participants will learn to sail a traditional sailing ship, navigate and handle ropes. They will be challenged to adjust to life aboard with fellow cremates as together with them they explore the depths of God’s word.

    A typical day includes, three bible teaching sessions before lunch, sailing to exotic destinations in the afternoon and water sport such as windsurfing, snorkelling, team games etc. then anchoring in a protected cove for the night where we share our life stories and discuss with each other themes relating to practical christian living.

    We travel to biblical sites such as Philippi, and ancient Corinth, helping to bring scripture to life as we gaze over the landscapes that the apostle Paul saw and step where he stepped.
