The Living Stones of the Holy land is an ecumenical charity with the primary aim of advancing education about Christianity in the Holy Land and countries around, by:
- raising awareness in Britain and elsewhere, educating and informing the public concerning Christians in the Holy Land, through our website, lectures, newsletter and a yearbook of academic theological articles;
- promoting contacts between Christians (and others) in Britain and in the Holy Land, e.g. through pilgrimages promoting encounter, reflection and witness;
- cooperating with other charities and groups with similar aims, by sharing activities and information.
