The American Church in Paris

The American Church in Paris is the first American church established on foreign soil.


Begun in 1814, it was officially chartered and the first sanctuary built in 1857. The present facilities on the quai d’Orsay date from 1930.

With a multi-faceted mission, the American Church is a community center as well, providing space and resources for a variety of community activities and groups. Two bilingual nursery schools, a variety of “twelve step” recovery groups, aerobic classes, basketball leagues, a free concert series, an “Ad Board” for housing and job opportunities, and many more community-based services are housed in the building.
