This is well worth a visit. It is uncanny that a Christian place of worship built in Moorish style includes carved quotes from the Koran and an inscription of the Lord's Prayer in Arabic. The wartime headstones of RAF crews are poignant.
As part of our guided tour we visited St Andrews Church. It was well maintained with lovely gardens. Walking around the graveyard you can see the graves of many British nationals who lived and died in Tangier as well as war graves from WW2.
Me and my family regularly visit this church as my father was a priest on sabbatical here in 2008. We always look around and the church never fails us. The church has a good decorations, well looked after grounds, friendly and experienced staff and a long history dating back many years. Would defiantly recommend to family and friends and would... 更多
If you're visiting Tangier and have time, take a guided tour of St Andrews. Lovely Church. Beautifully maintained interior. Christian, Jewish & Islamic touches. Interesting history. Lovely gardens. Walk around the grave yard and read the names of many British nationals who lived and died in Tangier. There are also Commonwealth War graves from WW2. Very good Moroccan guide who... 更多
It's not easy to find a Christian worship place in Morocco, but St. Andrew is a wonderful oasis. An historic building with a rich past, services are well done and much appreciated. A must see for Western Christians in Tangier.
This quiet corner of the city is a slice of England. It was a particularily poignant visit for me as a dear friend who had been living in Tangier had died and is buried here. It is very peaceful away from the hurly burly.
If you have the time,then a visit to St Andrews - particularly at the service time of 11.00 am on a Sunday - is well worthwhile. The combination of prayers and dedications in Arabic and English, from the Koran and the Bible, are very unique. The church building itself is not very large - probably just adequate for the typical... 更多
This is an incredibly interesting place. The history of this church is fascinating and definitely worth seeing/preserving. It is always inspiring to see the world's religions getting along, and as a person of faith myself, I love seeing a church take the lead in trying to mend relationships.
To appreciate St. Andrews Anglican church you must visit it on a Sunday morning (11.00) for their parish communion, where you will not only experience the physical beauty of the building but also experience some of the expats who are living in Tangier, from dowager ladies from Surrey to sub Saharan Christian refugees, singing at different times and off keys........ 更多
The guardian at St Andrew's is a very grasping party. This is the house of God and it is bad for Tangier that he is so demanding of money. Donations which he asks for are not given to the church, but go straight into his pocket. Were it not for the war graves, the Moroccans would have closed this place... 更多
