  • This temple located on Thomas Circle was built in 1931 in the neoclassical style according to the plans of the American architect John Russell Pope (1874-1937), who also has the Jefferson Memorial, the National Archives Building and Union Station. Pope was inspired by the Church of St.-Martin-in-the-Fields in London. The National City Christian Church is the temple of the Disciples of Christ, Christian religious community established in 1843 under the leadership of James Turner Barclay (1807-1874), based on the movement created by Thomas and Alexander Campbell of the Church Presbyterian of Pennsylvania and Virginia as well as Barton Stone of Kentucky. The presidents James A. Garfield, Lyndon B. Johnson and Ronald Reagan were members of this community. The Church has a beautiful five-manual organ. We give regular free concerts (music and Gospel choirs).
