History

Established in 1819, All Saints Church Jakarta is the oldest English-speaking institution in Indonesia. First as a base for the London Missionary Society’s mission to China, then as a colonial chaplaincy and for the last fifty years as an international church, All Saints has both witnessed and participated in Indonesia’s colourful and turbulent history.

Engelse Kerk

The name only dates back to 1950. For over a century before that the Dutch new it as Engelse kerk and the Indonesians as Gereja Inggris, literally “the English Church”. At its foundation, the Church at Menteng that we now know as All Saints Church was a collecting station for missionaries aiming to gain entry to China and Japan and other Asian nations. To this end land was purchased in 1819 in the name of the London Missionary Society Mission Station in Batavia.
