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.
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.
