Background on St. Andrews

 

St. Andrews construction of the Church was envisioned around 1918 after the capture of Jerusalem, when the idea of a Scottish War Memorial that would commemorate the many Scottish soldiers who fell during service in Palestine during the early part of the 20th century was borne. Funds were raised and the hospice eventually opened in 1930 and was considered extremely up scale at the time. The church of Scotland, through its local congregation, is very conscious of both the need to minister to pilgrims from overseas and to engage locally with the people of this region. Accordingly, through various partnerships, the Church is focusing on developing a greater educational emphasis and organizing alternative pilgrimages that will visitors to meet locals, including local Christians in order to deepen their understanding of the contemporary issues facing the Holy Land.
