The Ankara St. Térèse Church (Turkish: St. Térèse Kilisesi) is a Catholic Church in Ankara the capital of Turkey.


After the 1917 Great Ankara Fire, it was used as the French Embassy until the move to the new service building from 1928 until 1980. Turks and Armenians lived around the church during the Ottoman Empire. Ankara St. Clement's University is north of the church.[1] The church building was registered as a first degree urban site on April 12, 1980.[2]
