“The Stones Cry Out are dedicated to helping people understand the power of God’s Word in its original Ancient Near Eastern context, so that they can make an impact in theirs.”
Here’s our history at a glance…
Join us on a voyage of Bible discovery as we immerse ourselves in the Ancient Near Eastern World by exploring the amazing collection of biblical artefacts curated by the British Museum, London.
‘In Rhythm with God: Reading Scripture through Hebrew Eyes’ is a developing catalogue of modular courses that work together to help you really ‘get’ the Bible in the world it was written.
We believe excellence is a natural outworking of a Kingdom lifestyle and so it is always a pleasure to receive feedback from our guests. We believe they are our best advert. Here they are in their own words…
Fourteen of us were guided around the British Museum by Mark last Saturday. It was a most amazing and informative experience. There were many ‘Wow!’ moments! Mark’s knowledge and passion for Bible history brought parts of the Bible to life in a fresh way, and helped both to set Biblical accounts in world history and for us to comprehend more of the God who is over all of history. Awesome! I would highly recommend this Tour.
I have been privileged to visit Israel many times, but on my most recent trip Mark from ‘The Stones Cry Out’, guided us on a journey following Christ’s footsteps. His teachings were, quite simply, inspired. Mark’s extensive theological knowledge, his sensitive and spiritual interpretation and empathetic leadership all led to a unique, amazing and blessed encounter – and set in God’s own land. It is impossible to describe the experience – it was not a visit, it was an ENCOUNTER…
Probably one of the most insightful and fascinating courses I have attended. It brought the Old Testament to life and added a greater depth of meaning to the New Testament, particularly the Gospels. Absolutely invaluable and enjoyable!

It’s like an intellectual Disneyland… TSCO combine an in-depth knowledge of the Old Testament with a wonderful historical backdrop. The exhibits at the museum are presented in the context of a flowing narrative, clearly linking in the events of the bible with what is on show. This is an amazing example of a teaching gift at work. Our Guide Mark’s passion for scripture and the history surrounding it, ensure that this is so much more than a routine museum tour. A thoroughly enjoyable day that will stimulate your thinking as well as building your faith….The best day out in London I’ve had in a long time.

When my wife and I went on TSCO’s Israel Encounter it exceeded our expectations in ways we could not have imagined. Mark, our guide, gave us moments of insight into the history of the Bible and its archaeology that will stay with us forever. Would I go again? Absolutely!
Patrick Mayfield: Outlier Academy
Through the ‘In Rhythm with God’ sessions, Mark opened up to us such a revelation of how life REALLY was at the time of Christ. Stories we thought we knew and understood, were suddenly turned on their head as the reality of those times was unpacked for us… and Father’s love for us felt ever greater.
The Stones Cry Out tour was absolutely awe-inspiring. There are times when things I read about in the Bible feel more real as I remember what I’d seen on the tour and how Mark with joyfully over-flowing knowledge, skillfully helped us join the dots with the historical and biblical times. What I learned and experienced on the tour spills into my ministry to schools and churches when I present the Big Story of the Bible to children across my region. I hope that I can do the tour again as I know there’s more!
Andy Jones: Raise Childrens Work
Visiting the Holy Land always inspires and informs, but going there in the company of Rev. Mark Hendley was a real game-changer. Mark’s knowledge of biblical history and Scripture, combined with his understanding of archaeology and Jewish culture, meant that I learned so much more, I understood better and my faith was greatly strengthened.
I will always remember sitting in the remains of the synagogue at Capernaum as Mark spoke about the life of a Rabbi and discipleship. Altogether an unforgettable 10 days!
