Our Volunteers


Volunteers enable Friends of the Holy Land to fulfill our purpose and objectives, helping and encouraging our Christian brothers and sisters in the Holy Land.

FHL has a Management Committee that reports to a Board of Trustees, and meets regularly to guide our work in the Holy Land, review progress and plan new projects. The Trustees ensure full accountability for all funds raised and distributed by FHL and its partners. The Management Committee includes our three employees;  Director of Development, Maria McCaffery  our part-time Office Manager, Karen Baxter and our Communications Manager Marion Homer who works three days a week Monday - Wednesday

Our Holy Land Committee has its roots in the Christian communities there, and advises our National Committee on local issues and identifies projects for our support. They are supported by two part-time staff in an FHL office in Bethlehem.

Many of our supporters are organised through parish groups in Anglican and Catholic parishes across England, Wales and Scotland. Many Bishops have appointed a diocesan co-ordinator to help spread the message across their diocese.

More recently, England, Wales and Scotland have been divided into 13 Regions with volunteer FHL Regional Directors supporting the Management Committee to liaise with everyone in around 6 Anglican and Catholic Dioceses.

If you would like to know how to help the Christian people and communities of the Holy Land, either personally or by developing an FHL support group in your parish, please contact our office. You can become an FHL Ambassador, spreading awareness in local parishes, perhaps with a pulpit presentation or speaking to a local organisation.

Please tell your friends and family about Friends of the Holy Land, remember FHL and our Christian brothers and sisters in your private prayers, and encourage prayers for them in your church.
