Welcome to St George’s College website. Our courses are fully open once again and we invite you to find the study pilgrimage that suits you best. Holy Land pilgrimages are so often a life changing experience and we are sure that your call to encounter Jesus Christ in these lands will be deeply enriching.

Now that there are no travel restrictions into and out of Israel and Palestine we have reverted to our usual booking practices. A $500 deposit books your place on a course; this is non refundable but it is transferable to an alternative course in the following year if circumstances require. Further information can be found here

Course Director Position

We are delighted to announce that the College’s successor to Revd Canon Mary June Nestler’s as Course Director and Lecturer in Contextual Theology, is Revd Dr Rodney Aist. He will commence his post on 1st May 2022.

On his appointment to this post Rodney Aist said:”I’m grateful for the opportunity to return to St George’s College,
Jerusalem. As a pilgrim, guide, and scholar, my most transformative
moments in the Holy Land have always been in the company of others, and as a place of gathering, it’s the people, the staff, pilgrims, and Living
Stones that makes St George’s College and the Episcopal Diocese of
Jerusalem special.”
