Public Meeting - 'Christians Today in Palestine'
Jeremy Moodey on life in the Occupied Palestinian Territory
Jeremy Moodey (CEO of the Christian charity Embrace the Middle East) will talk about what life is like for the Christian community in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and especially in Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
He will also discuss the recent document ‘A Time for Action’ that is a British Christian response to ‘A Moment of Truth’ known as the Kairos Document of 2009 issued by Palestinian Christians of all denominations. It drew attention to the Occupation through a Christian perspective and called for concerted action to end that occupation and give Palestinians of whatever religion their own state.
The event is presented by West London Palestine Solidarity Campaign and takes place on Thursday 20th February at 7pm at St Michael & All Angels Parish Hall, The Avenue, Bedford Park, Chiswick W4 1TX. Admission is free and doors open at 6.30pm.
Jeremy Moodey was appointed chief executive of BibleLands, the Christian development charity focused on the Middle East, in November 2009. He led a programme of change at the charity, including changing its name to Embrace the Middle East.
Jeremy has an unusual background for a charity CEO. After university he worked for ten years as a diplomat with the Foreign Office, with postings in Pakistan and Rome. He then spent 15 years in the City as an investment banker in mergers and acquisitions, rising to the position of managing director at Rothschild.
