A few Words about the Church

The Evangelical Church of Czech Brethren is a Christian church containing traditions of Czech and European reformation, founded in 1918 by the connection of two protestant currents: the Lutheran and the Calvin one. It is a church based on testimony of the Bible, first of all on the gospel. Though some of its traditions go back up to the 15th century, it tries to be a modern church dealing with up-to-date world’s problems. Its organization is formed by principles of democracy.

Since its foundation in 1930 until the summer 2001, the congregational house hadn’t been reconstructed and so its facade remained the same. Original colors couldn’t been recognized any longer, the house became one of gray buildings in a gray street for many years. Just a copper chalice with the Bible at the front wall announced the difference from other houses – but even this was damaged and hard to be noticed. There was a need for reconstruction for a long time, but first for inside rooms and for the roof of the assembly hall.

Nowadays the facade is brand new with new front doors and with reconstructed chalice above them. In the opposite of the original look, remained on photographs, the new surface has changed both colors and a few of “important details”. It is not the end of itself. The author of the design, Ondřej Smolík, an architecture student, says:

“I was always a little ashamed that our church didn’t look like a church and that it didn’t differ form other houses in the street at all. Many of my friends even didn’t want to believe that I attended a church without any tower. And maybe many people passing by on Sunday mornings couldn’t understand why so many people were sinking into the basement of a gray block of flats. That was the reason why I tried to express the house to be a church. One of the attributes of a church is a tower and so here it became one of the main elements of the design. Brick-red sheet in the middle symbolizes the corps of church that is in fact hidden inside in the courtyard.”

About the Congregation
