Christianity in Iraq 3rd edition.JPGNew Edition with a full revision to the present day

This third edition is of great importance, since the additional chapter documents the events that preceded and followed the control of IS on Mosul and the departure of its Christians resulting in 120,000 Christian becoming homeless and losing their livelihood. The chapter also documents the heroic efforts of the churches in rescuing these displaced people and the support they received from the international aid and humanitarian agencies.



On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the founding of ICIN, a gala dinner and dance will be held at Oatlands Park Hotel, Weybridge in the evening and tickets are now on sale. Price of tickets is £100 per person.

The event is being held under the patronage of the Chaldean Patriarch of Babylon, Louis Raphaël I Sako and ICIN is delighted and honoured that he plans to attend the evening. Other dignitaries will also be invited.

The event will take place on Saturday, 3rd June 2017 and begin with a cocktail reception at 6:30pm followed by a three course seated dinner. The address of the venue is:

Oatlands Park Hotel
