The coronavirus outbreak in Bethlehem is having a devastating effect, causing people to lose their incomes due to lack of tourism. We are launching an appeal to provide one-off support to the most needy Christian families affected.
To secure a resilient and enduring community in the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan - the part of the world that Christians call the Holy Land
- To raise awareness of the challenges facing the Christians of the Holy Land
- To encourage prayer on their behalf
- To generate financial resources to give them a sustainable future
- To encourage visits (pilgrimage) to the Holy Land to meet local Christians
In our 10th year, we ask you to think about how you can Stand Firm with our Brothers and Sisters in the Holy Land and show them they are not forgotten by Christians in the UK.
We ask you to commit your time and resources by Standing Firm in Prayer, Standing Firm by speaking out to others of our mission, Standing Firm by planning to visit soon on pilgrimage and Standing Firm by your commitment to regular giving, however small.
Please let us know of these commitments by registering your prayer group to the Prayer Bank we are building, by volunteering to be an Advocate two or three times a year, by letting us know in advance of your pilgrimage plans and by completing our standing order; you can do this by post or by calling into our office.

Our Friends in Ayr Diocese have continued their work fundraising for FHL and sharing their commitment to standing firm with our Brothers and Sisters in 2020.
