St. George’s College Jerusalem is part of the complex that includes the Cathedral Church of St. George the Martyr, St George’s School, the St. George’s Cathedral Pilgrim Guesthouse, and the offices of the Anglican Archbishop in Jerusalem.
The College pursues a threefold mission:
- Local—as a mission agency of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem we bear witness to Christ in the Holy Land.
- Regional—we provide ministry resources for clergy and lay leaders across the Middle East and in other Islamic contexts.
- Global—we offer opportunities for pilgrimage, reconciliation, research and spiritual formation within the Anglican Communion.
The College operates from a three-story building on the Cathedral Close which can house up to 40 residential guests at any one time.
The unique context of St. George’s College means we offer a place where clergy and laity from across the Anglican Communion as well as a variety of other traditions can share in a deep experience of community, pilgrimage, education, interfaith dialogue and reconciliation.
As a meeting place not only for Christians from around the world but also for Jews and Muslims, Jerusalem offers significant possibilities for interfaith engagement. All of the College courses provide encounters with the local Churches and the College serves as a resource for the clergy of the Diocese of Jerusalem.
St George’s College’s Patron is The Most Rev’d and Right Honourable Justin Welby.
