Christ Church Guest House

Located just inside the Old City’s Jaffa Gate, the Guest House is an integral part of the Christ Church Ministry Centre. Outside shopkeepers hawk their wares and tourists throng the Arab Market and flock to the Old City’s many historic sites. Within a short walk are Herod's Palace/David's Tower Museum, the Western Wall, the Temple Mount, the Garden Tomb, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Via Dolorosa, the Mount of Olives, and Mount Zion.

Inside a tranquil refuge greets the weary traveller! Your home in Jerusalem was built and is maintained in the Ottoman style; domed ceilings and Bethlehem stone floors; sympathetic modern decor sits alongside 19th century British colonial furniture and architecture.

Our Hebrew Guest House Site
'Your hospitality in Christ Church has been absolutely fabulous. I am really humbled by by your kind gestures. When next I am in Jerusalem I will definitely come back to drink from the fountain of love.'
- Rev Canon R. R. Wonole

Our Values
We are a Christian organization. We are part of the Anglican Church and in our case we are evangelical and traditional in our values. Probably the biggest percentage of our guests are Christians who hold to the same values. Our guesthouse is adjacent to and integrated with our church and as well as being a guest house, our staff and volunteers represent a community where prayer, devotions and worship make up a regular pattern of our daily life.
We hope this background is helpful as you consider booking with us.

Christ Church Guest House Facilities

Inside the gates, visitors discover a tranquil courtyard amongst shady trees, flowers and intriguing historic buildings. Christian staff members from around the world serve and minister to guests touring the Christ Church complex, and those staying in the Guest House. Constructed in the 1830’s, the buildinss are also home to CMJ’s Alexander College and the Conrad Schick Library for historical research.

Facing the Guest House is the 19th century Christ Church – the first Protestant Church in the Middle East – where visitors can pray, or just bask in the unique atmosphere of one of the jewels of Jerusalem's undiscovered places. The church is home to a number of weekly worship services.  Next to the Church is the Minister's House, which served as the first British Consulate in Israel. 

Within the Guest House, visitors can enjoy refreshments or full meals in the Coffee Shop, or join in a Shabbat meal on Friday evenings.  Living accommodations are comfortable, offering suites, single and double rooms furnished in the Ottoman style. 

There is also a beautiful, secluded prayer garden, available on request, for quiet reflection, study, prayer and renewal.

The unique historical environment also enables visitors to learn about the inspiring contributions by the London Jews Society (CMJ) to the land and people of Israel.  Our Heritage Center, which includes the historic buildings, a number of 19th century architectural models and many displays and photographs, chronicle the events and notable individuals whose passion for God led them to work on behalf of the Jewish people. Visitors to the Heritage Centre should not miss a climb down the narrow stairs to the Herodian Tunnel display. The tunnel was discovered when Christ Church was built in the 1840’s, but lay hidden until it's reopening in the 1990's.

Christ Church Ministry Center staff members are available to show visitors around the centre, and tell them about, and arrange for study tours offered by our own Shoresh Tours.

'It's wonderful to find a Christian Community right in the heart of Old Jerusalem. May God bless the volunteers that have maintained this place alive and nice'

Christ Church Guest Volunteers
We have an International Team of volunteers at Christ Church, who we think of as family. Their main duties are in household and kitchen, on the maintenance team, or on reception/front desk duties. They are part of a team of people made up of local Arab and Jewish staff who provide hospitality for Christian groups and other visitors.
The mini museum, explaining the history of the "English Church" in Jerusalem, is a magnet for Israeli people who love the atmosphere and architecture. Volunteers get the opportunity to experience many cultures and interact with people from a variety of religious backgrounds. If you are physically fit, mature in attitude, flexible in nature, and committed to following Jesus then you could volunteer.
