Our links with the Diocese of Jerusalem

On Sunday 8th October 2017 we were happy to welcome our visitors from the West Bank.

Below are on the left Marwan Durzi (who works as an advisor to the Palestinian Prime Minister) and on the right Dr Abeer Aranki-Nasir (a dental practitioner in a West Bank University) with Fr James at the end of our Harvest Mass. During the sermon time and afterwards in Henley Hall, Marwan and Abeer spoke and answered questions about life on the West Bank for the Christian Communities who have lived there since the time of Christ.

Ambassadors’ ‘faith shone out’
Five ambassadors from the Diocese of Jerusalem – a priest, a film producer, a dentist, a nutritionist and an advisor to the Palestinian Prime Minister –  spent ten days travelling across Southwell & Nottingham to give an insight into the challenges facing Christians in Israel, Palestine and Jordan.
David Lane, Holy Lands Partnership Officer, who organized the visit, said:  “What shone out was the centrality of their faith lived out in the most difficult of circumstances and the contribution that faith made to their sense of identity.”
