Lonely Planet review

Located just across from the Citadel in the Jaffa Gate area, Christ Church was the Holy Land’s first Protestant church, consecrated in 1849. It was built by the London Society for Promoting Christianity Among the Jews (known today as CMJ, the Church’s Ministry Among the Jews). The society’s founders were inspired by the belief that the Jews would be restored to what was then Turkish Palestine, and that many would acknowledge Jesus Christ as the Messiah before He returned.
