Sousse Cemetery Christians and non-Muslims

It is a beautiful and quiet place to visit. There are many shade trees and comfortable places to sit, meditate and pray.


This cemetery for Christians and non-Muslims is open for visitors everyday but Friday from 7 AM to 6 PM.


The Cemetery was moved to this location,
not far from the Sousse Olympic Stadium.

The original location of the Sousse Cemetery for Christians and non-Muslims was near downtown, at the current location of the Champion grocery store. The families of those buried here gave their permission for the bodies of their relatives to be relocated.


There is a gardener who maintains the cemetery, guarding it and keeping clean and watered year-round.



The Sousse Cemetery (Cimitiere les Cypres) is the only location south of Nabeul, where Christians and other non-Muslims may be buried, outside of Tunis. Other cemeteries, Christians were buried in Tunisia are full and no longer have space for burials.

If you are in need of help with a burial, please call us for more information! We can put you in contact with the correct government and cemetery authorities as well as the Protestant Minister and the Catholic Priests.

Sousse Lily

 
Wild lily growing in a field of olive trees.
Jesus said in Matthew 6:27-29  "Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature?  (28)  And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:  (29)  And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

Sousse Church Facebook Page

 
We started our Sousse Church Facebook Page two weeks ago. The response is encouraging. As of Sept. 4, we have 109 fans. We'd like to steadily increase that number, by providing engaging content.


This is a snapshot of the people who follow the Sousse Church Facebook Page. It is encouraging to see a wide expanse of ages represented. We hope our cool car photos, like this week's Lamborghini or Maserati, will get some of you guys to follow our Sousse Church Facebook Page.
Here's a Maserati we found parked downtown by the beach hotels.
