Palestine is our oldest overseas link. St Philip's church has had a link with Bethlehem in Palestine with the House of Hope and Bethlehem Bible College since 1983.

This link began in 1983 with the House of Hope for blind and disabled children in Bethlehem and the Bethlehem Bible college. We have hosted Palestinian choirs from the college, help a Bethlehem co-operative sell goods in the Christmas Market in Bath and are involved in the struggle for peace between Jew and Arab.
