What we do
Our ministry has two main points of focus:
1. Blessing Israel
We seek to break down barriers and build bridges of genuine friendship with Israel and the UK Jewish community. Relationship leads to reconciliation and mutual understanding. Today as anti-Semitism again rises world-wide, Israel and Jewish people are deeply touched by Christian solidarity and support.
We help Christians to bless Israel by:
- Encouraging informed prayer
With regular prayer letters and resources, a weekly prayer line and broadcast, the Wall of Prayer project etc.
- Channelling support to projects in Israel
Helping holocaust survivors and new immigrants, terror victims and the poor and needy, Jewish and Palestinian children, Christian believers in Israel, etc., in the name of Jesus.
- Joint events with the UK Jewish community
At national and local level, for Lobby days in parliament, Holocaust Memorial Days, solidarity meetings, Israel Independence celebrations, etc
- Taking tours to Israel
CFI staff promote selected tours to Israel each year.
- Providing accurate news from the Middle East
Countering misinformation and propaganda with truthful reporting from Christians on the spot.
2. Serving The Church
Making the connection - in previous generations many Christians understood the importance of Israel`s restoration in God`s Kingdom purposes and actively promoted it, today this legacy has largely been lost. There is great ignorance, impoverishing the churches. CFI helps Christians understand the biblical relationship between Israel and the Church and reconnect with the Hebraic roots of their faith (Romans 11:16-18). We also seek to give a truthful and balanced perspective on events in the Middle East and be a prophetic voice bringing `understanding of the times`.
We accomplish this through:
Sign up for our free quarterly magazine and monthly prayer letter, or check out other publications in our online shop.
