Mensa Christi Church is located next to the Maronite Church along side to a spring in the so-called "Spring Neighborhood".
It is believed that Jesus and his disciples used to dine in the "Mensa-Christi" church.

The name "Albalata Church" in Arabic, as "Balata" means Slab; refers to the slab where Jesus and his disciples dined.
The slab is 12 feet long, 9 feet broad and 3 feet high.

It is believed that the monks built a church around the slab in 1781. However, the exact time in which those monks took possession of that place remains vague.
This church was razed in 1859 and was reconstructed in 1860.

A large chalk-stone rock is scored with graffiti made by countless pilgrims throughout the ages.

The church is closed these days.
