Middle East

The Church of Scotland has a long history in the Middle East and in Israel has two congregations, a School, Guesthouse, and Hotel. We are active in supporting the people of the Middle East and advocating for peace in the region in political and religious arenas.

Throughout our Middle East pages you will see a variety of partnerships some of which are historic and some that are more contemporary.

If you are interested in finding out more about one of our partners or exploring the opportunities of twinning with a congregation in the Middle East please get in touch and/or visit our Twinning page. You can also help support the Church of Scotland HIV Programme by visiting our HIV Programme pages.

Join in with our prayers for peace in Israel and Palestine every 24th of the month at various locations around Scotland. You can also use our 'Invest in Peace' resources in your church to learn more about the reality faced by Christians in the Middle East and ways in which the World Mission Council helps in the region.
