The Society of Friends of St Andrew’s
The Friends of St Andrews Jerusalem are stoic in the support of the church that holds a place in their hearts. In December 1917, General Allenby entered the Old City of Jerusalem and thus began its story, being built as a memorial to Scottish soldiers who fell fighting in this region during World War I. Since its inception it has remained a focus for Scots, as well as international visitors, to the Holy Land, through a century of historical turbulence. Despite a shrinking permanent congregation as it celebrates its centenary, the church continues to provide a place of comfort and peace. The Friends of St Andrew’s Jerusalem ensure that support, both emotional and financial, does not diminish, scholarships continue to be provided and projects backed by the church are sustained.
