Nazareth Trust

Organization Description: 

For almost 150 years we have been 'healing in the name of Jesus' in Nazareth. What started as a humble clinic with 4 beds has grown to become Nazareth's General Hospital sitting high on 25 acres of Nazarene hillside we have owned since 1906.
For 80 years our School of Nursing has offered an open doorway to all young people from the Nazareth area, preparing them for a life of service and care for others.
At the bottom of our hillside sits the 'Nazareth Village' . Here, 500 metres from the original centre of Nazareth, Jesus' parables come to vivid life in an archaeologically and historically accurate portrayal of rural life in New Testament times.
There is a long tradition of volunteers of all ages coming to Nazareth from many countries to help in our work. Volunteers play a crucial role in the life of the community on our campus. They come in order to give - but often find they receive much much more!
Volunteers come individually, or in work parties, for short or longer periods.
