Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be a Christian to come on a Richmond Holiday?
No, not at all! Richmond is delighted to welcome all people - whether you profess a Christian faith or whether you are just thinking about Christianity or indeed if you are decided against faith.
Am I financially protected?
Yes, one hundred percent! All holidays booked with Richmond are 100% financially secure. As a member of TTA - the Travel Trust Association - all your money is placed in an independent Trust Account until you return from your holiday. So by definition your money is fully protected. If you book a package holiday with us including flights then you are protected by our ATOL License.
What is “Christian” about these holidays?
Firstly, all our staff teams are Christians and they meet around the Word and pray every morning. Secondly there’s a Pastor Teacher on every holiday whose role is to organise a short morning prayer meeting and the formal ministry meeting each evening at which there is usually singing, prayer and a short Bible talk. The Pastor Teacher is also available at times during the day and evening for individual conversations, informal counselling and prayer.
Must I attend the meetings?
No - it is your holiday and these are purely optional! You choose exactly what you do each day. Usually most guests will take part in the evening meetings (which last about 45 minutes or so, before dinner) but there is no pressure to do so.
I have special dietary requirements
That is no problem. In our ski resorts (and summer alpine resorts) we employ our own Chefs and we have much experience of providing for your specific needs. In the summer hotels we can pass on your requests but it is sometimes not possible in Greece and Turkey to cater for every requirement. Please ring our team at Sunrise House and we will do everything we can to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.
Are there ways I can support Richmond?
Yes indeed! The very best way for ensuring the continuation of Quality Christian Holidays is twofold: firstly by prayer and we issue a twice yearly Prayer Letter; secondly, by coming on our holidays and by recommending us to your family and friends, churches and house groups. We have a database of Church Partners who receive mailings about three or four times per year. Please contact us for more information.
