Where we are


Our church is situated in the heart of Kyiv, a Ukrainian city founded in the 6th century and now the capital of Ukraine. The church is frequently visited by locals and tourists as it located nearby the Parliament of Ukraine and the President’s office, the political center of Ukraine. The church is also in the heart of the cultural and religious center of Kyiv, as many historical buildings and ancient churches such as the Mariinsky-Tsar Palace, St Sophia’s Cathedral (from 11th century), Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra (12th century), and St. Andrew’s Church (18th century), are located within walking distance. Also in the vicinity are the Opera House, Kyiv History Museum, several fine art museums and large universities, and many other cultural institutions. Kyiv is a modern city with a population of more than 4 million with a convenient transportation system; the Khreschatyk metro station is a short walk away.

Who we are

Christ Church Kyiv was planted by the Intercontinental Church Society (ICS) in 1997.

The church has a small but faithful number of expatriate members as well as regular Ukrainian members and visitors. Members and visitors come from different nationalities and denominations, with a broad range of social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. We have an active church council and congregation. English is the liturgical and administrative language of the congregation.


What are looking for and what we want to do


We are praying for a leader with strong administrative skills who has a deep love for the Lord and for sharing with others. Attributes should include someone with a pastoral heart who cares about the spiritual development of church members and desires to involve parishioners in the church’s life and leadership. This leader should have good judgment and discernment in addressing the demands of the homeless, persons displaced to Kyiv by the conflicts in Crimea and eastern Ukraine, refugees and migrants, and those with physical and emotional needs. This can be very demanding at times.

Physical resources

St. Katharine’s Lutheran Church offers excellent premises. The ground floor holds a sanctuary that accommodates approximately two hundred people, a large library/meeting room, a small meeting room, a fully-equipped kitchen, and restrooms. Above the sanctuary is another large meeting room, a choir loft, and a beautiful pipe organ.


About half of the congregation are fluent English speakers. Some of the English speakers also speak fluent Russian or Ukrainian. Church work is done primarily in English, but Russian or Ukrainian is helpful for everyday life.

Health Care

Western-style health care is available in Kyiv in English-speaking clinics.


Everywhere in Kyiv one can find and purchase all basic necessities. Eating out in Kyiv is reasonable and excellent choices abound. There are several farmers markets in Kyiv, where food products cost reasonably and are of good quality.


Public transport is reasonable and reliable. Buses and the metro (subway) run daily on a frequent schedule. The metro is from late 1960s, and a stop is located just 300 meters from the church. Uber and other ride hailing services are abundant and relatively inexpensive.


The climate is rather continental, with big differences between summer and winter temperatures. Apartment buildings have central heating which is provided by municipal authorities from late October until early April. In January and February there may be up to two weeks of very cold weather (around minus 15-20 degrees Celsius). In July and August there may be several weeks of hot weather (up to 35 degrees Celsius).
