    Armenia was the first nation to adopt Christianity. Christianity is the national church of Armenia. St James Cathedral Church is situated in the Armenian Quarter in the walled Old City of Jerusalem. The ancient Church is alive with decorations, it is very beautiful., well worth a visit. Armenia is an independent nation in the Caucasus, it has persisted since the Apostolic era.

    We have been with a group off 15 people in this church today. The pastor Albert was warmly welcoming us personally and all people were very kind to us. The worship was nice and the highlight for me was a bright and inspiring message. Also the children service was nice and done by heart from old ladies with a warm heart.

    Even when the service was over we spended another hour to talk about different topics having a really good time.

    This church is a shining example for Jerusalem bringing peace and love and my recommendation.

    Be sure to spend 10-20 minutes by the pool when visiting the Church of Saint Anne. Worth walking through and reading the placards.

    The Syriac Church is an ancient church, tracing its roots to the earliest days of Christianity; it predates Protestant churches by many centuries. St Mark's Church is wonderfully decorated, gaining access is not always easy, it helps if you have a local guide.

    Visiting Emmaus for a worship service with a pilgrimage group is a deeply meaningful experience not to be missed. Non-religious tourists may find it interesting for that importance but not a must-see. For Christians the story of how the disciples recognize the resurrected Jesus ‘in the breaking of the bread” is fundamental to the faith. So it is that lens they use to admire the ruins of the Byzantine basilica and visit the small museum dedicated to archeological finds and history. Without that perspective others may simply see a few broken stone walls and some faded mosaic remnants. Nevertheless, Emmaus has an aura of calm and peacefulness accessible to any visitor.

    As usual the authenticity of the site is supported by consensus over other possible locations. What is known is that the area has been fought over for hundreds of years ranging from battles of Joshua, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Ottomans even into the 1967 Six Day War. Richard Lionheart spent Christmas of 1140 here. The Basilica was repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt. Today the site and gift shop are reverently maintained by a detachment of the French Catholic Community of the Beatitudes. By car there is easy access from the main road from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    Since not so many people wrote review of this church, let me contribute some. It’s a small church, feels a bit dated, but also very real. I visited in June 2022. The entrance still has a calendar of activities in 2016. You can sit there and pray quietly. Feel the holiness.

    Augusta Victoria is an active hospital mainly for East Jerusalemites and surronding villages in the West Bank. There is a large and beautiful church, well worth a visit and walking through the compound and to the back of it you will come to an impressive view over the Judean Desert, with the Jordanian mountains in the background and the Dead sea so if you are anyway on the Mount of Olives, well worth a visit

    As this church is outside the Fortification wall, probably is not so visited but it’s worth a detour. Not far from the church you have the modern downtown with good shops and places to eat. Enjoy!

    It is worth leaving the walled city to see this church and other sites near by. The church has ornate paintings and mosaics and because there were few visitors had a nicer atmosphere.

    The church is simple and small. The most notable feature is the large statue of the Last Supper behind the altar. The church also contains an interesting metal chandelier over the altar and some stained glass windows on the side. There is a little park area next to the church and the area is rather peaceful. This church is a very short walk from Dormition Abbey and the Room of the Last Supper, all more or less in the same complex.
