Jordan River baptismal site

ICoHS and the Churches in the Holy Land are working with Israeli and Jordanian officials to radically improve access for pilgrims wishing to visit the site of Christ’s baptism from both sides of the River Jordan. Plans are being made to build a bridge over the Jordan river that will allow ease of access, where there is currently a hard border. Alongside this, ICoHS is working with partners to increase the numbers of pilgrims and support local economies on both sides of the river.
