The first gift of the Risen Jesus to his disciples is peace.
“Peace be with you,” he says to those gathered and anxious after his death. (John 20:19)
“Again Jesus said, ‘Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.’” (John 20:21)
In this time of great need for many thousands of families in the Middle East, we ask that you may consider a special service with an emergency appeal collection on Sunday 21st September for the International Day of Peace, or during the World Week of Prayer for Palestine and Israel on 21st to 27th September.
Below are some downloadable resources. If you would like to order some emergency appeal envelopes, please call us on 1800 025 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
