THE ANGLICAN CENTRE

title

The Anglican Centre is the spiritual home for many Christian congregations and groups who worship and fellowship here in Qatar. This ecumenical tradition of hospitality is well established in the Anglican Church in the Gulf, where many individual Christian groups do not have their own dedicated buildings. The Anglican Centre currently accommodates over eighty five (85) Evangelical, Pentecostal and Protestant congregations. At the heart of the Centre is the Anglican Church of the Epiphany.

In 2005 the Ruler of Qatar authorised the leasing of land to site the country’s first Christian churches since the seventh century when Islam took root in this Gulf country. The Anglican Centre in Qatar, was built with the kind permission of His Highness The Emir Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani, on a site leased by the State of Qatar.

The Anglican Centre provides a welcome for many Anglican/Protestant/Evangelical Christians to address both their spiritual and community needs. Also, the Centre offers multiple worship spaces of differing sizes, utilizing a design that will allow both larger and smaller groups to worship simultaneously. The multi-purpose design of the Centre easily facilitates classrooms, meeting rooms and many variously-sized assembly halls available for Church Groups, Youth Groups, Sunday Schools, Prayer Groups and Christian activities, plus some limited administrative and storage functions. A courtyard area on the northern side of the main Sanctuary features a cross-shaped Baptistry modeled on ancient churches of the early church, and baptisms are administered by different congregations almost weekly. The Chapel is situated in the southern courtyard and it is used primarily for quiet time or private prayer and meditation. It also serves as a venue for weddings and memorial services.

The Anglican Centre provides a confluence for the Protestant church communities in Doha, Qatar; each congregation worships within their own church tradition and language.
