Christianity in Qatar
I might be moving to Qatar next year. I am a Christian and want to know if that´s ´safe´ or not. I wouldnt be out preaching, just doing my own bible study at home. Are there any places where Christians are allowed to gather?18 Aug 2006, 08:09 Anonymous
there are lots of churches in doha, the main one being the catholic church at the american school, and all religions are allowed to meet and perform rituals. the constuction of the actual church building is still tied up in beurocracy, but people of any faith are free to practice their religion and most people do, in prayer halls of their own group.
ask around after you come here, and you'll learn of the place where people of your faith go to.Anonymous 13 Oct 2006, 03:39 - Report
It is a a country with reasonable freedom to worship at home and in state allowed churches(but no interference in the proceeding of the church).
Preaching to the locals
is prohibited by law. But if we being christians should not fear any earthly lawAnonymous 01 Jan 2007, 07:25 - Report

Qatar is a very nice and homely place to live, as long as you have the right employment. There are quite a number of bible oriented churches are available. The biggest one is Catholic as usual. There is no church compound or any particular permitted location allocated to have all the churches, people are gathering in school halls and places of their own especially on Fridays. Though it is not legally permitted, there are no major objections from Govt. or other Islamic orders as long as we don’t disturb the community or violate the country and Islamic regulations. Qatari’s are wonderful people, very loving, generous and kind. May God bless Qatar more and more as they have been real blessings to all of us.
