Photo and description
The Lutheran Church of the city of Lutsk is an architectural monument, which is located in the historical and cultural reserve "Old Lutsk" on Luteranskaya street, 1.
The church was erected in 1906 as a temple belonging to the Lutsk Lutheran community. From the very beginning of its existence, it was one of the main temples of Volyn, which belonged to the German colonists. During the Second World War, the church fell into disrepair. In 1951 it belonged to the Volyn Regional State Archives. In 1981, the church received the status of an architectural monument.
After the collapse of the Union, the church was handed over to the Baptist community, who in 1991 made a complete restoration of the temple: they cleaned the dull bricks, restored the spiers and lost elements of the exterior, a cross was installed on the central dome of the bell tower, and inside - a new altar, carved furniture, balconies and a pulpit. After all this, the church regained its original appearance.
The Lutheran Church in the neo-Gothic brick style is a one-nave building with a high bell tower. Its traditional interior features choirs, narthex, nave and apses. On the left side of the altar on the dais is the preaching pulpit. Located in the apse, the altar has the structure of an amphitheater, which allows for a choir.
The external entrance has a lancet profile portal, ending with a steep pediment. The absis and nave are supported by buttresses with arches, and the windows have a pointed end. A high 24-meter spire, which completes the vertical composition of the temple, is supported by side peaks located above the narthex.
Today, the Lutheran Church belongs to Evangelical Christians-Baptists and is an architectural monument that occupies an important aesthetic and compositional place in the overall panorama of the Lutsk reserve.
