Church History

The foundation stone was laid on the 7th April 1963, the church was consecrated on the 20th October 1963. The church was built on a vacant plot of land, where a filling-station could not be erected due to planning restrictions.

This church is the successor to the "old" German Lutheran Church in Wright Street, Manchester.
