During the British Mandate period in Palestine, Jewish, Muslim and Christian chidren studied together at Anglican missionary schools. This educational project became part of wider efforts made by the Anglican Church to promote peace in Palestine. The article focuses on statements on 'friendship' made by the Anglican bishops in Jerusalem as well as the missionary teachers and how the concept was related to the peace efforts. When looking into the discourses of friendship, I argue that on the one hand friendship was used as a way of legitimising asymmetric power relations connected to Western and Christian imperialism. On the other hand friendship was also connected to a search for dialogue and an openness in the relations to other groups, in this way transgressing boundaries and building peace.
