Augsberg Evangelical Lord's Resurrection Church

  ul. Warszawska 18      (+48) 32 253 99 81     more than a year ago
Work began on this neo-Roman beauty to serve the city's growing German- and Polish-speaking Evangelists in July 1856. Tired of attending services inside a cramped room at the Marta Steelworks with a pastor brought in from the town of Tarnowskie Góry northwest of the city, the local Evangelical community built this fine-looking church on a cornerstone that contains to this day two documents inside a metal urn, one a written record of the history of the parish and the other a prayer asking God for the church's blessing. Built in a style popular in Berlin at the time, the church holds just over 300 people, has a modest organ and a belfry that was used as a landmark during WWII and containing a small bell with an even smaller bullethole in it. Temporarily handed over to the Catholic community in 1945, the church was returned to its rightful owners two years later.
