Friends of the Holy Land marked our 10th Anniversary with an ecumenical service at The Metropolitan Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew. Led by The Most Reverend Suheil Dawani, Anglican Archbishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, the service was supported by The Most Reverend Philip Tartaglia, the Metropolitan Archbishop of Glasgow at this event. 

This service marked new territory for FHL in Scotland and was well attended by clergy and congregations from different denominations. FHL were honoured to be hosted in Glasgow a city that is twinned with Bethlehem.  Glasgow is also home to a unique ecumenical community of different Christian Denominations, and FHL were delighted to see the support from all Christians here in the UK supporting all of our Brothers and Sisters in the Holy Land, regardless of denomination.

We hope to build on this support, and that Christians in Scotland will stand firm with Christians in the Holy Land.

Thank you to all those who were able to join us.
