The Most Revd Hosam Naoum will be installed as the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem on Ascension Day.

Please join us by watching the livestreamed ceremony on Thursday 13 May at 2pm UK time (4pm in Jerusalem). You can watch the ceremony on YouTube here or on Facebook here and will be able to post messages of congratulations live. Bishop Christopher will be representing the Archbishop of Canterbury at the installation.

Friends of the Holy Land has joined with Embrace the Middle East and religious leaders in the UK (including Bishop Christopher) to bid farewell to Archbishop Suheil Dawani on his retirement and to welcome Bishop Hosam Naoum to his new ministry. You can watch their video messages here.

In his message, Bishop Christopher thanked Archbishop Suheil for his friendship, guidance and wisdom. “It was a wonderful privilege in January to sign the Covenant which brings our two dioceses together in fellowship and in missional common purpose,” he said.

In an ecumenical message led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols and Lord Rowan Williams, two patrons of Friends of the Holy Land, all involved pray that the Holy Spirit be a companion to help Bishop Hosam in his ministry, particularly as it starts during the current difficult times in Jerusalem.

Thy Kingdom Come 2021

 TKC logo

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. Christians from more than 170 countries and 65 denominations have taken part.

Thy Kingdom Come runs between Ascension and Pentecost, and in 2021 will take place from 13-23 May

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:

  • Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus
  • Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness


What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
