Persecuted Christians in Iraq and Syria View all categories

It is clear that sadly there is no imminent end to the systematic and harsh persecution of the Christian Church in Iraq and Syria. In 2016 our Lent Appeal aims to raise money for two reputable partners – ‘Aid to the Church in Need’ and ‘Open Doors’ – to help to alleviate the suffering of Christians being persecuted because of their faith in the Middle East.

Visit www.london.anglican.org/lentappeal for full details of the Lent Appeal.
