FRIENDS OF THE HOLY LAND: The situation for Christian families in the Holy Land has gone from very difficult to critical, amidst the turmoil and horror of the Israeli/Palestinian war and we face the possibility of the last members of the ancient Christian community leaving the homeland of our faith forever.  Friends of the Holy Land has provided practical help to 1,100 people sheltering in the Gaza church compounds – including children and people who are injured and ill and the Al-Ahli Hospital, which is still doing its best to look after patients who can’t be moved. All together over £90,000 has been sent so far, so that those sheltering in their churches and the hospital could survive.  The usual Christmas  traditions and celebrations in Bethlehem are suspended  in solidarity with those suffering. We are asked to support their appeal by donating to:

Name: Friends of the Holy Land. Account: 24591211.  Sort Code: 60-05-41
