In Palestine, ABM works with the Diocese of Jerusalem, which is one of four dioceses of the Episcopal/Anglican Church in the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East.

The Diocese of Jerusalem also covers Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Israel with a total of almost thirty parishes.

The church is very active in its ministry and supports various institutions including hospitals, clinics, kindergartens and schools with the aim to provide better healthcare and education to local communities. It also works to build up interfaith dialogue between Christians, Jews and Muslims in these countries.

ABM has supported the diocese for many years, through funded projects, the Good Friday Gift and most recently, through an emergency appeal for Syria.
