    There are about half a million Palestinian Christians, but many of them live in other parts of the world.

    In Gaza, their population is just over a thousand. It was more than double that, ten years ago, when the blockade by Israel and Egypt began.

    They gather in just three churches and congregations are shrinking.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb reports from Gaza.
