Gereja Kristen Jawi Wetan Mojowarno


“Dhuh Gusti, Ingkang Kawula Purugi Sinten Malih?
Paduka Ingkang Kagungan Pangandikaning Gesang Langgeng”
Yah 6:68

Gereja Kristen Jawi Wetan Mojowarno, merupakan gereja Kristen Jawi Wetan tertua di Indonesia yang di bangun pada tahun 1845 dan menjadi pusat perkembangan ajaran agama Kristen di Mojowarno dan sekitarnya. Gereja Mojowarno ini mendapat renovasi pertamanya pada 24 Januari, 1879 dan resmi dibuka kembali pada 3 Maret, 1881. Dari hal ini, banyak yang berpendapat bahwa gereja ini baru dibangun pada tahun 1881, padahal keberadaannya sudah lama ada.

Gereja ini berarsitekturkan gaya neo gothic a la Eropa dan masih berdiri dengan kokoh melawan waktu untuk terus menjadi sebuah bait bagi kemuliaanNya. Sebagai penyesuaian budaya, gereja gothic inipun menambahkan ornamen-ornamen budaya lokal Jawa, seperti beberapa ukiran Jawa di bagian altar dan relief tulisan Jawa kuno di pallete bangunan dan pintu gerbang masuk gereja.

Dengan adanya akulturasi budaya dalam arsitekturalnya, masyarakat lokal menjadi merasa berada di rumah sendiri dan juga bisa menarik kunjungan dari mereka yang ingin melihat keagungan rumah Tuhan ini.
