Friends of the Holy Land

The FHL, is a non-political Christian Charity supporting the Christian population of the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan.

The objectives of the group, which is based in Kenilworth, are to pray for Christians in the holy Land, to raise awareness of their plight, to encourage pilgrimages, and to raise funds to support them.

Seventy years ago Christians made up 29% of the Holy Land population, today they account for less than 2%. Travel restrictions, water shortages, and poverty leads to many Christians emigrating. They also live with the psychological effect of the 18ft high wall separating them from their olive groves. We would welcome anyone who would like to become involved with the group. 

We hold a pancake lunch on shrove Tuesday, at the Friary and serve homemade cake after 6.00 Mass on Sunday evenings, to raise funds. For more information, to receive regular updates of our work in the Holy Land, or to receive a crib collecting box for your home, see their website (CLICK HERE) and/or email Steve and Jenny Roper at

We would like to thank all of you who have so generously supported the Pentecostal appeal, for our fellow Christians in the Holy Land.
