First Church in Qatar (in a loooong time)

There are churches in Qatar from what I hear, but this is the first time since the advent of Islam that a building designed as a church is being built there.

Work has begun on the construction of Qatar's first purpose-built church in the desert outside Doha, the country's capital.

Although the country's native inhabitants are entirely Muslim - and are prohibited by law from converting to another faith - the new Catholic church will cater to the large number of Christian migrants who have come to the Arabia Gulf state in search of work.
