Overview

The first Protestant church in the Middle East it came into being when a controversial agreement to establish a joint bishopric in Jerusalem was signed between Britain and Prussia. The neo-Gothic building was dedicated in 1848 in the compound that was once the British consulate. It is now home to several congregations who worship in English, Hebrew, Romanian, and Filipino. Note the Hebrew inscriptions, the Hebrew Ten Commandments behind the altar, and the stained glass windows with Jewish symbols. Christ Church also operates the Immanuel Bookshop next door, a guest house, and coffee shop.
