Upon entering Christ Church, guests are immediately taken aback by the quiet and private gardens and interior courtyard, offering guests solace and a peaceful refuge from the crowded and bustling walkways outside the premises. Guest rooms are small and plainly furnished but are clean and comfortable and provide private bathroom facilities. The guest rooms situated in the Nicolayson wing are modern and air-conditioned, while those in the historic Alexander Wing recall the Imperial glory of the Ottoman and British Empires.
Background of Christ Church
Christ Church is run by CMJ Israel, and provides a quiet getaway built in the nineteenth century and offering 29 guest rooms. The property was the first Protestant Church in the Jerusalem, consecrated in 1849 in anticipation that the Jewish people would be gathering in the Holy land. The unique property houses a beautiful chapel on premises along with a dedicated spiritual lead bible study program. The founders of Christ Church want Jewish people to be able to enter the facility and see the Christian faith as it is in its beginning including all its similarities to Judaism.
This guesthouse enjoys an idyllic setting in the heart of Jerusalem’s old city just north of the bustling Jaffa Gate and a stone’s throw from the Arab Shuk (market). It is situated directly across from the Jerusalem Police Station, across from and slightly south of the Tower of David.
