Archbishop launches appeal for Christians in Holy Land

The Archbishop of Canterbury has launched an appeal in aid of suffering Christians in the Holy Land.

Dr Rowan Williams appealed to Anglicans and others to give generously towards the fund that will be used to support community projects aimed at helping to sustain vulnerable Christian communities.

“We know our brothers and sisters there are suffering, and we don’t always ask ourselves often enough what our response needs to be,” he said.

The funds will support Christian communities in the West Bank in particular.

The Archbishop continued: “I returned from a visit to the Holy Land last year with a very, very strong sense that we had to do more to express our solidarity with the Christian communities there.

“We know our brothers and sisters there are suffering; and we don’t always ask ourselves often enough what our response needs to be.”
