155: Finding A Christian Church In Israel

May 18, 2022

Did you know that less than 2% of the people living in Israel are Christian? That can make it extremely hard to find a place of worship while you are there on holiday. Not only that - if you google churches in Israel - you will likely find a lot of markers for places of Biblical significance (ie. where Jesus turned water into wine or where Jesus multiplied the fish and loaves to feed over 5,000 people.) So then, how do you find a group of believers to worship with in Israel? In this episode I cover a number of options and share a few resources to help you find a worship service on your next trip.

To access CTN's list of worship services, sign up for our email list. This PDF will be one of many the resources on our online platform launching in late June of this year. This platform will let you find trips with other believers, plan trips and invite others, and make new connections - among other things. So head to our website now to register: www.ChristianTravelers.net

Who shines the light of Christ in the midst of those chaotic moments for passengers, employees, and families alike?

When traveling internationally - have you ever stopped to attend a worship service in an airport? Or prayed in a prayer room? Or even considered if there was a chaplain in the airport? Or had you even wondered if there was a worship service at airports in different countries? After episode 144, where we looked at worship services in the USA, we decided to take a global look at some of the best rated airports in the world to determine if they offer worship services. Not only that - we took a closer look at the religious makeup of these countries to determine if that had any influence on whether they had a worship space or not!
