English Church Services in Lima

Updated 30 March 2015

There are lots of churches of many denominations here in Lima. Most of them are in Spanish, however, the ones below are in English.

One tip to remember is that speaking Spanish will help you greatly. You'll be treated differently than if you speak English all the time, it'll help you assimilate, and you'll be able to attend services in Spanish as well. If you're looking to learn Spanish, check out Fluenz Spanish, Rosetta Stone, and Synergy Spanish.
