Christianity in Iran dates back to the early years of the faith, pre-dating Islam. It has always been a minority religion relative to the majority state religions (Zoroastrianism before the Islamic conquest, Sunni Islam in the Middle Ages and Shia Islam in modern times), though it had a much larger representation in the past than it does today. Christians of Iran have played a significant part in the history of Christian mission. Currently there are at least 600 churches and 300,000–370,000 Christians in Iran.
The German Speaking Evangelical Congregation in Iran (Evangelische Gemeinde Deutscher Sprache in Iran) is a church in Tehran, Iran, that was founded by expatriates in 1957. It is affiliated to the Evangelical Church in Germany.

It also serves English speakers. Services are conducted in the German language on Fridays, and there is an English language service on the first Friday in the month.
