Our tour group attended Sunday morning service here and received a very warm welcome, slightly strangely the service was Parton Arabic and part in English, we even got two sermons. The church itself is very traditional of Anglican churches, there is a lovely garden with many interesting fruit trees. It was a bit of a drive from our hotel so... More

Most people think they are visiting an Anglican/Episcople Cathedral (because this is the seat of the archbishop), but it is more than that. There is a guest house and a college. The college offers some really great courses that connect with Christianity, Islam and Judaism. The most popular courses relate to Jesus. But there are courses on Islam and Christianity,... More

This place (a large church rather than a true cathedral) could easily be in Hampshire or elsewhere in England. It seems stuck in a timewarp too as there's a sense it is still the early 20th century with the memorials and information about the early years of the British presence policing Palestine. Worth a visit if you are nearby (5mins... More

If you are traveling alone, without the pressures of a tour group, and are not afraid to venture into the "not so friendly looking" streets (walk with confidence as though you belong there without looking like a lost tourist, even if you are!), do stop by the St George Cathedral if you are already in the vicinity of the Garden...

I visited this church for two services on Sundays at 11am in October 2013. The cathedral which is the base for the bishop of Jerusalem, is very clean, tidy and impressive. It can be viewed as a little bit of England as it has all the hallmarks of a English Church. The services are typical high end church, but delivered... More

This cathedral is more like an English parish church rather than the sort of vast structure associated with many European cities, but it is none the less worth a calming visit, particularly for Anglicans who feel like a reminder of home after visiting so many other more famous and/or more exotic Christian churches. Walk north up the Nablus Road for... More
