Local Churches

The Heads of Churches in Jerusalem, speaking to an ecumenical delegation to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) in June 2001, called for the churches of the world to stand in solidarity with the churches and people in Palestine and Israel. This was to lead to the creation of the EAPPI.

The churches in Jerusalem which called for the EAPPI and welcome it today are listed below, with the name of the current church leader. Do please remember the churches, their leadership and members in your prayers.
