Harwich and the ‘Christ-Bearer’ Pioneers who established America

Gods election of the two Harwich men who established America.

In 1607, Admiral Christopher Newport, led the Jamestown Expedition, the first settlement of North America.

In 1620, Christopher Jones led the Mayflower Expedition of the Separatist, Pilgrim Fathers.

Christopher means ‘Christ-Bearer’. Both men were raised in Harwich and attended St Nicholas Church, Harwich. Available parish records depict their family history. These were two extraordinary Christian hero pioneers. Visit their church and hear how the origins of American civilisation poured forth from the 11th Century family baptismal font.

A day of walking, talking and prayerful seminars and site explorations.

We will walk you through the atmosphere of Harwich Arts Quarter and visit the House Museum home of Christopher Jones. Experience English traditional hospitality in the former Merchant House of Jones’ wife Josian, now a quintessential English Pub, The Alma Inn.

Prayerful Bible engagement will reveal the hidden significance of these moves of God to the New World 400 years ago.
