Our Current Projects

Are you wondering how you can get involved and make a difference to the community in Nazareth? Look no further: we are currently working on four projects, and with your help, we can make them happen!

  • 160th Anniversary Appeal: In the lead up to our 160th anniversary, we have launched an appeal towards the hospital’s ER expansion. Today, over 70,000 people come through our Emergency Room doors each year, but our facilities are too small to receive so many people. We have plans to build a new ER where the existing chapel is, with the first phase being relocating our hospital chapel to make room for the new ER facility. We are looking for 160 people who can give £100 a month for 60 months.
  • Nazareth Village Discovery Center: Our open-air biblical museum has attracted more than one million visitors since it opened in 2000. To enhance the visitor experience, we need to build the Discovery Center. If you donate at least £140 ($200), your name will be engraved into a brick of the new building.
  • Expansion of the Nazareth Academic School of Nursing: The Israeli Ministry of Health indicated in their 2019 statistical reports that 4,000 nursing graduates will be required annually. As a result, the Nazareth Academic School of Nursing has increased the annual target number of students to 450 and needs to expand its building.
  • Expansion of the Pastoral Care Team: With over 700 staff and more than 180,000 patients every year, we need to expand our Pastoral Care Team to enable us to keep providing emotional and spiritual support to our staff, patients and their families.

As we approach our 160th anniversary, we would love you to join in our celebrations and get involved in the 160th Anniversary Appeal. As you well know, at the heart of the Nazareth Trust is our Christian faith, and the hospital chapel has always been an oasis of tranquillity, a place where our Christian staff and patients have worshipped God for many years. All four projects are equally important to us, but we would like to draw special attention to our 160th Anniversary Appeal in honour of such a unique occasion.

To design and build our chapel, we need your support. If 160 people give £100 a month for 60 months, we can make it happen! Could you be one of them? We appreciate £100 is a big ask. However, whatever contribution you can give to this project would be greatly appreciated.

With your help, we can make a difference to the community in Nazareth!
