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.

St Andrew’s Tiberias will be undergoing a renovation and will be closed from 1 August 2017 until Christmas 2017. During this time, an informal service of Holy Communion will be held at the Scots Hotel every Sunday at 6pm. All are welcome to attend. Please ask hotel reception staff to show you where to go.

We are always delighted to have groups join us for our weekly worship and want you to feel a part of our community. While we are meeting in the hotel, we would be grateful if you could contact us in advance to let us know you plan to attend. That will assist us in our preparations and allow us to give you the warm welcome you deserve when you arrive.


For more information about our services, please contact the Minister, the Reverend Kate McDonald.
