Started in 1926, then inaugurated on July 4, 1930, the church, in the Art-New style, is the work of architect Charles-Henri Besnard. He used techniques that he had patented a few years earlier as elements of moulded armed cement. It is the first church built with this method. The church, classified as a Historic Monument, has beautiful frescoes and stained glass windows due to the Alsatian master glassmaker Greber. St Christophe de Javel is also known for its Master's degree, created in 1955 by organist Claude Sommer. It was successively conducted by many well-known choirmasters (Henri Chalet, Gérald de Montmarin). Messes avec orgue Saturday 6:30 PM, Sunday 9 and 11 AM
Originally, the church was equipped with a small Cavaillé-Mutin organ that was the former salon organ of Jean Huré. Its construction dates back to 1915-1920. In 1970, it was rebuilt by the Schwenkdel House in Strasbourg- Koenigshoffen. The wind-chests of the Grand-Orgue and the Swell were replaced, the mechanics rebuilt and the piping was re-tuned. The harmony was performed by the Steinmetz brothers.
