St Andrew's Church of Scotland
The dying wish (albeit unfulfilled) of Scotland's king, Robert the Bruce, was that his heart be buried in Jerusalem, commemorated in a small plaque in the church floor. Completed in 1927, St Andrew's is also a memorial to Scottish soldiers of World War I. Its square tower flies the blue and white Scottish flag with the Cross of St Andrew, Jesus' disciple and Scotland's patron. During Israel's 1948 War of Independence, a cable was strung from the church tower to the Old City in order to bring supplies to those besieged there.
I worshipped here each sunday whilst I was living on the Mount of olives working there.
The people were open and friendly and loving and kind. I was treated like one of the family.
