In order to prevent the spread of Covid-19, our church building is closed until further notice, but our people continue to meet virtually with the congregation of St Andrew’s Scots Memorial Church, Jerusalem. You can read our weekly reflections on the St Andrew’s Jerusalem website or watch them on the Facebook page.
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 10am, we gather to share in prayer, song, scripture reading and, on most Sundays, our worship includes 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.
We are always delighted to have pilgrim groups join us for worship, and you are welcome to simply show up on the day. However if your group is larger than 20 or if you have specific requirements (e.g. gluten-free bread or non-alcoholic wine for Communion), it helps us in our preparation if you can notify us in advance.
The church is also available throughout the week for visiting groups who wish to hold their own service of worship. Members of all denominations are welcome. It is open by appointment for visitors.
For more information about our services or, to arrange a visit, 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.
