A sanctuary for remembrance, reflection and reconciliation
You have made us for yourself, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you
– St Augustine.
Our weekly Sunday service is Communion (open to all) at 10am.
A warm welcome awaits you at St Andrew’s Scots Memorial Church, Jerusalem. A sanctuary for remembrance, reflection, and reconciliation.
St Andrew’s is a church for all and we welcome children and young people to all our services. Children are invited to join our Explorer group after the children’s address or are welcome to remain in the church.
Afterwards, worshippers are invited to tea, coffee, and conversation in the lounge of St Andrew’s Scots Guesthouse next door or to buy traditional Palestinian craft goods from the Sunbula shop just off the lounge.
St Andrew’s Scots Memorial Church looks across the valley to the golden walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. The church is built beside ancient tombs on the original road to Bethlehem.
The church was constructed as a memorial to Scottish soldiers who died here in World War I and was dedicated in 1930.
The church, the guesthouse, and their terrace and garden are places for quiet reflection, open to everyone, in the midst of a noisy and bustling city.
The church, with its resonant acoustic, is also regularly used for concerts.
