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.

For more information about our services, or if you are a pilgrimage group leader and would like to use the church to conduct your own service, please contact the Minister, the Reverend Kate McDonald.

Lent and Holy Week


Each Sunday in Lent we have Holy Communion in the church at 6pm.

On Good Friday, the church will be open from noon until 3pm for prayer and reflection.

On Easter Sunday, we will have a dawn Communion service at 6am in the gardens of the Scots Hotel and an evening Communion service at 6pm in the church.



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