Thank you

Thank you to St Paul’s for hosting the recent Workshop Behind the News: Palestinian Christians and Theology.

A special thank you to Les Böhm and Claudia Hyles. Participants learnt more about the situation in Palestine and Israel including the work of Anglican Overseas Aid.

$350 was raised for Anglican Overseas Aid Projects: the Al-Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza and children’s therapy programs at the Spafford Children’s Centre in East Jerusalem with outreach to the West Bank.
