The Swedish Christian Study Centre is a unique institution for liberal adult education in the Holy land, run by the Swedish study association Bilda.
Founded in 1991, SCSC organizes and facilitates study trips in the Holy land for groups from Sweden. Since its foundation, SCSC has received more than 10.000 Swedish visitors, and has made a substantial contribution to the interest in and knowledge about the Holy land in Sweden.
In addition to receiving study groups, the Swedish Christian Study Centre hosts Swedish scholars and students wishing to explore the history, culture, and politics of the Holy land. Throughout its history, the SCSC has placed a particular emphasis on developing relationships with the Eastern Churches.
The SCSC also has a local programme, including lectures and seminars on a wide range of topics but concentrating on the Christian heritage of the Holy land. It also serves the Swedish-speaking community in Jerusalem, organizing “breakfast clubs” and study circles. The centre is open to the public on all weekdays.
The SCSC staff consists of a director, a programme coordinator, and an assisting director. Click here for contact and opening hours.
