Sun, Sail, Worship, Rest.

The undiscovered island of Samos is a spectacular place to enjoy sailing on the Aegean Sea or sunbathing in the glorious Greek sun!

Culture, Rest, Explore

Home to vineyards, banana plantations and famous levada walks, Madeira is a stunning, vibrant island off the coast of East Africa waiting for you to discover.

Ministry Leaders

Your Ministry Leader is there for you throughout your summer holiday with Richmond. Start your day with a short reflection, chat and pray during the day and enjoy times of worship and teaching in the evenings. Everything is optional and we love how much of the “ministry” on a Richmond holiday happens around the pool or on a walk along the coast! If you’d like to learn more about the Ministry Leaders on your next holiday, take a look below.
