Serve Nazareth


"SERVE allowed me not only to learn ways of loving and serving people, but it showed me that we can really only do so because we ourselves are tremendously loved by a Father unlike any other." 
Temitope, SERVEr summer 2010

There's still time to apply for our SERVE & SEE programs running for 2-4 weeks this November!

SERVE & SEE is for those who have limited time available, want to SERVE the community of Nazareth and SEE biblical sites. 

As a SERVEr you’ll make lifelong friends while you support local ministries in practical ways. Whatever your skills or interests, there is a place for you! As a SEE’er you’ll tour a new biblical site each week. Sail the Sea of Galilee, walk the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, explore ancient sites and make Jesus’ hometown your own. You’ll leave a bit of your heart behind!
With 2, 3 or 4-week options, you can choose a timescale to suit you and the places you want to see. If you enjoy adventure, you can travel independently, making this a flexible and action packed experience.

Applications are welcome throughout the year, but applying at least three months before your intended arrival is recommended to ensure the timing you want. This applies to individuals and groups.
