Friends of the Holy Land

By Brendan Metcalfe

The goal of Friends of the Holy Land is to secure a resilient and enduring Christian community in the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan. The pandemic has hit hard in this area as around 70% of Christians rely on tourism for a living. For a second year there have been no pilgrims visiting at Easter, in fact many in these vulnerable communities have been without income since March 2020. In response we have recently launched our Pentecost Challenge, a virtual pilgrimage from Bethlehem to Nazareth which allows participants to fundraise as they discover rarely visited Christian communities in the West Bank. You can find more information at:

I was hoping that you would share news of this event among your network of friends and family. Perhaps you can get a team together? Participants will discover ancient Christian communities rarely visited. Also, if you click on the link below and provide your information, I will make sure to keep you up to date with our news. I hope we can see better times soon as we gradually emerge from lockdown through the summer.

Keep well. Best wishes, Brendan Metcalfe

Our call to mission as being made in the image and likeness of God is two-fold: to have authentic relationships with our fellow man, and to have an authentic personal encounter with our living God through His Son Jesus Christ who is, who was and who will always be. Let us not bicker, spew hate, or worry about trivial matters when we can become better images of our self to walk humbly with our loving God.
