Christian Zionists expelled for Israel support

    A Zionist Christian group says it will take legal action to fight eviction from its premises because it supports Israel.

    Father's House, a small church group of 40 people based in the Welsh village of Gwernymynydd, near Mold, says this is the first case of a Christian church being evicted from a public village building because of its beliefs.

    In May, the group received an eviction letter from the village centre from which it has run church services for 11 years. The centre gave the group six months to leave and said: "There has also been great concern expressed about the content of your website, and the very controversial views it contains. The Village Centre Committee does not wish to be associated with your views."

    The website contains news and editorial about anti-Israel activity.

    Father's House pastor Mike Fryer,
    a former National Crime Squad detective who studied at Yad Vashem in Israel, said the eviction was discriminatory under the Equality Act as it is connected to the group's beliefs. No-one from the Village Centre Management Committee was available for comment, but they have previously said the decision was taken because they wanted to use the church's weekly booking for children's parties and other events.
