Immanuel's Church (official Indonesian Gereja Immanuel) is a Protestant church in Jakarta, Indonesia. It is considered one of the oldest churches in Indonesia. It stands on the corner of Jalan Medan Merdeka Timur and Jalan Pejambon, part of the 19th century's Weltevreden district, renamed and transformed into Gambir. The church is the only one in Jakarta that conducts some of its services in Dutch. It also performs services in Indonesian and English.
The first idea for the construction from the Dutch Reformists and the Lutherans in Batavia (Jakarta). Construction started in 1834, per the design of J.H. Horst. The laying of the first stone was on 24 August 1835 and completion exactly four years later. The Church was christened as Willemskerk to honour King William I of the Netherlands. It is considered one of the first civic building in the Koningsplein (later Merdeka Square).

The oldest and largest pipe organs in Jakarta. please be careful to not touch the pipe organs carelessly, it’s still working since the 19th century until this review posted (24/12/2017) the building is so old yet still standing strong. built with the dutch style.

The church is an old antique worship building which has Dutch & English services on 10 am & 5 pm. It's quiet good to join the worship since there are several air conditioners & fans, but the toilets need more maintenance & care. The parking lots are spacious & the location is strategic to be reached.
