The Friends of St Andrew’s Jerusalem & Tiberias are resolute in the support of the Churches that hold a place in their hearts.
In December 1917, General Allenby entered the Old City of Jerusalem and thus began the story of St Andrew’s Jerusalem, 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. St Andrew’s Tiberias was originally the focus of the Medical Mission on the Sea of Galilee. The two congregations were united in 2018 and together offer a sanctuary of comfort and peace.
The Friends of St Andrew’s Jerusalem & Tiberias ensure that support, both emotional and financial, does not diminish, scholarships continue to be provided and projects backed by the church are sustained.
