Aid to the Church in Need

n a special Christmas video message recorded for Aid to the Church in Need’s website, HRH The Prince of Wales has reached out to suffering Christians and assured them of his prayers.

In his message, His Royal Highness describes meeting a Syrian Sister and a priest from Sri Lanka before highlighting the recent suffering of Christians in both countries.

He describes the Sister’s work in Aleppo reaching out to Christians and others, providing them with emergency help and supporting them in prayer.

The Prince goes on to reference the findings of ACN’s Persecuted and Forgotten? A report on Christians oppressed for their Faith 2017-19, which showed the precarious position of Middle East Christians.

He states the report’s finding that within a decade up to two-thirds of Christians have fled Syria and that in Iraq, the faithful have dwindled by up to 90 percent within a generation. 

Over the Christmas period, please spare a thought for our suffering brothers and sisters in Christ and join His Royal Highness in saying a prayer for them.
