Our Purpose

The Christian people of the Holy Land have been under increasing economic and political pressure in the past seventy-five years, and during that time the Christian population there has fallen steadily. Friends of the Holy Land (FHL) was established in 2009 to help and encourage Christians to flourish in the land of their birth, to ensure a secure presence where Christianity began. Working closely with the churches here and in the Holy Land, our work is entirely non-political, and has the backing and blessing of Anglican and Catholic Bishops in England, Wales, Scotland and elsewhere.
