Christian Church Services

Are there any English-speaking Christian Church services anywhere in or around Cuenca?


We haven't come across any English services. There are a few churches that were built by Americans, but services are held for Ecuadorians, which means Spanish.

Verbo has headsets and has someone interpret into English.

Translation for English-Speaking Christians

The Verbo church has headsets working now for translating Spanish to English in the Sunday morning services. We are adding more headsets soon to be able to serve all who come.

The church is on the corner of 10 de Agosto y Loja. Most taxi drivers know us.

Where is the non-Catholic Christian church?


There are dozens of non-Catholic churches in Cuenca. There are Baptist, Lutheran and evangelical churches.

The two that you may be wondering about are Centro Cristiano on Avenida de las Américas, and Verbo, on Diez de Agosto.

English Christian Fellowship

We are a nondenominational diverse body united in Christ by our belief in the Apostle's Creed (and other historic creeds). We meet each Sunday at 10:30 a.m. in the Cuenca Rotary Club (27 de Febrero, next to the bombero's school).

We have been meeting since July 2012. Our first pastor, Rev. David Small, retiring to Cuenca from Bellingham, WA, will assume pastoral duties in October 2013.

We focus on traditional hymns and choruses, scripture readings, study, and exhortation, prayer, and fellowship.

I just want to thank you both soooo much for creating this web site. I am originally from Cuenca but moved to New York 11 years ago and have not being back since. My husband and I are planning on visiting Cuenca over the Summer and this web site has helped me a lot.

When I came to the US we still had the "sucre," the bus ride cost 1,000 sucres and a pack of trident gum would cost 3,000 sucres. I am very nervous to go back, but thanks to your web site I now know what to expect.

My husband is American and Captivating Cuenca has taught him a lot about what my great city has to offer, things that I had forgotten about myself! :)

Thank You both so much! I cannot wait to visit Cuenca!!
