Lent Appeal 2019
This year’s Lent Appeal is for Embrace the Middle East (formerly known as ‘BibleLands’), a Christian charity tackling poverty and injustice in the Middle East. In addition to a strong presence in Israel and Palestine, including Gaza, the charity provides support in the Lebanon, particularly for refugees, in Egypt, and, most recently, in Iraq and in war-torn Syria.
Embrace raises around £7m each year but urgently needs more to meet the region’s expanding demands. A collection will be taken at the back of the Cathedral each Sunday during Lent and proceeds from the Lent Lunch will also go to Embrace.
We’re delighted to be supporting this charity for our Lent Appeal this year so please give generously using the gift aid envelopes provided.
