Wright St German Protestant, Greenheys
The Great War dealt the Church a severe blow. The pator, Mr. Kramer, who had been in Manchester since 1905 was recalled to Germany a few months before the declaration of war and his deputy worked only a few months longer. As the congregation dispersed, the Church only just managed to retain its rights and status through the war and it took the Church community several years to come to life again after the war. Since then the Deutsche Evangelische Kirche, as it is now known has suffered long periods without its own minister, sharing the services of pastor with Liverpool and Bradford although a new church building was consecrated in Stretford in 1963.
