The Greek Orthodox Church in Djerba, one of the signs of the siege of Christianity in Tunisia

Christianity in Tunisia is a minority, they are Arabic speakers and also of European origin, and Tunisian Christians are spread throughout Tunisia.

Christianity arrived in Tunisia from the earliest times for its spread by missionaries who came to it from Palestine and neighboring countries. Many people, especially Amazighs, embraced Christianity.

The churches were built on the area of ​​the region, but the Christian spread began to decline and the number of Christians decreased with the arrival of the Islamic conquests to Tunisia led by the obstacle of Ben Nafie around the year 681.

Today, there are Christian communities in Tunisia, most of them of European origin, many of whom are contractors or employees of international companies. Their presence in the country is during colonization and they gather in the capital or major cities.

 The majority of the Christians of Tunisia are Catholics, along with some Protestants, so Orthodox churches have become mere evidence that this doctrine has passed from here.

The Russian Orthodox Church has about 100 members and runs the Russian Orthodox Church in Tunisia and the Church of St. Alexander Nevsky in Bizerte.

The Protestant Church in France also maintains a subsidiary church in Tunisia, with a gathering of 140 members, mostly of French origin in the first place.

The Anglican Church owns the Church of St. George of Anglican in Tunisia with members of several hundred and they are mostly foreign.

There are also 50 members of the Adventist Church.
