A Burnham minister will travel to Isreal and occupied Palestine territories as part of a Christian Aid mission, despite being shot at and arrested on previous trips.
The Rev Dr Jon Morgan, 54, minister at The United Reformed Church in Burnham, will travel to the Tel Aviv in Isreal from Heathrow on Friday and will spend over a week in the region.
Mr Morgan, with nine other people, will find himelf in the midst of combat to offer support and emergency relief to Palestinian refugees and those under pressure in occupied territories.
