LDS meetings in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

Recommended Posts

Hi @Curious! Glad you are here!

i went to lds.org, searched for find a meeting house and put in the location https://www.lds.org/maps/meetinghouses/@24.818969,47.065687,7&id=Riyadh::Riyadh+Province::Saudi+Arabia:24.293911,46.298103,25.156472,47.346954

I did not see a meeting place. Let me see if I can find something in Saudi

Hmmm. Saudi appears to be uncontaminated by lds meetings. https://www.lds.org/maps/meetinghouses/@24.078942,37.847373,5&id=::::Saudi+Arabia:16.003600,34.530000,32.154284,55.666700

It's not allowed there.  She can't even post anything on facebook that has to do with religion. She is LDS.  So she basically posts about her kids and little trips and adventures they go through while there.

I have accepted a job offer in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. I only will know the chirch if it exists there. Anyone know of how I could reach out to leadership there?

There are branches in Saudi.  But the Church can't publicize it.  The meetings are held just outside the boundaries.

If you're working Saudi Aramco, then you're in luck.  A LOT of Mormons work for Aramco.  They like Mormons there.  While the law disallows the Church to worship there (hence the meetings are outside the national boundaries) the primary compounds where Aramco Expats work is pretty close to the church.

They'll have their weekly meetings there.  But all activities are at the compounds.

Riyadh is a might farther from Bahrain than Dharhan.  So, I'm not sure what you can do.  From what I understand, you can have meetings through word of mouth.  For Mormons, they tend to have a "don't ask don't tell" policy about our meetings.  We're free to tell people our religious preference.  But it is the meetings themselves that are just a bit underground.
