Stay at our historic B&B accommodation
When you arrive at the Christ Church Guest House, you will enter another world - an oasis of peace and tranquillity amidst the hustle and bustle of the Old City's Jaffa Gate.
This is a haven and refuge from the busy-ness of the city, offering en-suite rooms with a beautiful courtyard where you can relax with a cup of coffee and cake from our fabulous coffee shop, or eat a meal from the restaurant.
More About us
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 campus, and those staying in the Guest House.
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 accommodation is 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 enables visitors to learn about the inspiring contributions by the London Jewish Society (now known as CMJ) to the land and people of Israel. Our Heritage Centre, 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.
