Welcome to Saint Andrew’s Tiberias, the Church of Scotland in the Galilee.

We are an ecumenical English-speaking church in the heart of the ancient city of Tiberias. Each Sunday at 6pm, we gather to share in prayer, song, scripture reading and Holy Communion. The congregation regularly consists of those who live locally and pilgrims, sojourners and tourists. Wherever you’re from, whoever you are, whatever your reason for being here, you will be made very welcome.


Holy Week and Easter at St Andrew’s Tiberias

During Palm Sunday and Holy Week this year, we will be joining other local Christian communities for their celebrations. There will be no service at St Andrew’s Tiberias on Palm Sunday, 25 March 2018. 

A Holy Communion service for Easter will be held at 6pm on Easter Sunday, 1 April 2018.


The church building is also available throughout the week for visiting groups who wish to hold their own service of worship. Members of all denominations are welcome.


For more information about our services or to book the church for your own service, please contact the Minister, the Reverend Kate McDonald.




The Church of Scotland is a Presbyterian Church working in partnership with the Anglican and Lutheran Churches throughout Israel and Palestine.
