Operation Nehemiah Update: News and Prayer #3
Country/Region: United Kingdom, Europe
Introducing Britain's Halal Economy
A typical supermarket meat display
A year ago the World Halal Forum resolved "to work towards a European Halal Regulations and Accreditation system, starting with a single country as a pilot project, with the country proposed being the United Kingdom".
This week, Britain's halal future will be shaped by the global halal industry when the Forum visits London for the first time. Delegates from around the world will gather on 10-11 November 2010 at Earls Court, London with the theme "Halal Products & Services - Going Mainstream".

Renovated school kitchen to serve halal meals to local community
"Bristol City Council and their catering partner Eden Foodservice have commissioned the services of Catering Design Group, to design, create and build two kitchens at the Whitehouse Centre in Bristol. One of the kitchens will be a dedicated facility for the production of up to 5,000 Halal meals a week, to service schools in the local community."
Hospital trust rejects Bible ban
"A ban on bedside Bibles considered by an NHS hospital trust that feared the Christian holy books could spread germs has been rejected. Bibles in bedside areas could pose a risk of cross-infection if not cleaned properly, according to research studied by Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust. But the trust decided against banning the book in bedside lockers, opting instead to keep copies in holders and protective plastic covers that can be easily cleaned after each patient has used them."
South Africa: Woolies reverses decision deemed "anti-Christian"
"Woolworths (South Africa) have reversed a decision not to sell Christian magazines in their stores, after consumers threatened to boycott the retail giant for its ‘anti-Christian policies'".
- Operation Nehemiah urges Christians to pray for the discussions taking place at Earls Court on 10 and 11 November 2010. We believe that Christians and others should be allowed to know what they are eating and have the freedom to choose. We are also concerned by the increasing infiltration of products and services prepared in accordance with sharia.
- Praise God for the decisions made by Nottingham University NHS Trust to retain bedside Bibles, and by Woolworths in South Africa to reinstate Christian magazines.
