 Merger of Friends of Sabeel UK and Kairos Britain
Efforts to support the Palestinian Christian community combined

In the early part of 2017 the Management Committee of Kairos Britain and the Trustees of Friends of Sabeel UK voted in favour of merging the two organisations. The merger had the support of both Kairos Palestine and Sabeel Jerusalem.

Kairos Britain is a network of individuals, organisations and faith communities formed in response to the Kairos Palestine document, ‘A moment of truth’. The network continues the work of the Christians who met on Iona in May 2012 and issued the Iona call to the Christian communities in Britain.

It was felt that the advocacy work undertaken by Kairos Britain would be strengthened by the Theology of Liberation for the Palestinian Christian community that Sabeel has developed over the last 70 years. In addition the Liberation Theology of Sabeel would benefit from the advocacy work that Kairos Britain engages in and the merger would allow the development of a joint advocacy programme which would have a significant impact in the UK.
