Categories / Tsarskoe Selo and town of Pushkin. The digital chronological reference book/Monuments of history and culture

The Lutheran Church was founded according to the initiative of the director of the Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum Ye. A. Engelgardt and the Lyceum pastor Gnichtel. In 1817-1818 a wooden building was adapted for using as the church on money granted by Alexander I. At first public religious services were conducted by the Lyceum pastor in German and Latin languages. In the church plot there was a primary school which was maintained on the parish’s money. On 14 August 1860 the new building was laid in the place of the old one. Design, approved by the Emperor, was developed by A.F. Vidov on the base of the model project of the Lutheran church of K.A. Thorn. In 1864 Alexander II made the donation of 7,000 Rb for finishing the building and on his birthday on 17 April 1938 the church was consecrated. At the Soviet time public services were stopped here in 1938 and the building was used as a vehicle repair workshop. In 1977 on the initiative of the Finnish Evangelical community the restoration repair of facades was made under the direction of M.I. Tolstov. In the same year the church was anew consecrated in the name of the Resurrection of Christ and services were begun in Finnish and Russian.
