Introduction

Holy Land

The Christian community in the Holy Land represents a physical link between the modern world and the life and times of Christ - they are the 'living stones' of our faith. The term 'living stones' refers to the communities from which Christ drew his disciples, and who remain a living community in the countries of the Holy Land.

The International Affairs department, on behalf of the Bishops of England and Wales, works to support them and holds them always in prayer.
