Purpose

The Methodist Liaison Office in Jerusalem was officially launched in October 2012 to engage the world Methodist family in Christ’s ministry of peace, justice, truth, and mercy among all peoples living in the Holy Land in partnership with the Palestinian Christian community.

The office is a partnership of the World Methodist Council, the Methodist Church of Britain and the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church. Its purpose is to increase awareness and involvement of the worldwide Methodist community in the issues of Palestine and Israel. The Office is also charged with coordinating advocacy and education initiatives and can provide travel and volunteer opportunities for the global Methodist community

Principles

We assert all humans are made in the image of God and worthy of equal value and dignity therefore the MLO works with all who labour to establish and maintain human rights under international law, and who advocate and inhabit a non-violent approach. We are committed to working collaboratively and in partnership with Palestinian Christians and the historic churches in the region. We are committed to communicating the reality on the ground, and in particular the lived experience of Palestinian Christians, to our sponsoring churches to enable informed advocacy.
