Building Project Oskar-Röder-Str. 3

Vision and Building Project

For many years we, as a church, had the desire to purchase our own property. Three central ideas were driving us:

  • Preparing for the future of our church. Where would we meet once the rented rooms were too small? What if the rented rooms would no longer be available to us? How can conferences be organized on regular basis without having our own space?
  • Preferring to be owners instead of renters. As owners, we could greatly improve our way of organizing many things and, at the same time, we would invest capital into the future of our church.
  • Leaving a legacy for the next generation

The idea is to win some battles now in order to give the next generation a good start.

Miraculously, in 2012, we were able to purchase a 6,700 square meter large property, including a building in need of rehabilitation, in Dresden-Seidnitz. Since then, the building has been completely gutted. In August 2016, 70% of the old building was demolished to make room for our new church campus. Plans on paper are also moving forward.

There will be three building phases that will keep us busy for some years. Our goal is to move our current rooms/offices at Schandauer Straße to the new church campus as soon as possible. In order for that to happen, phase 1 has to be 80% completed.

In the following video you can see the demolition of parts of the old building.


Currently the northern facade is being renovated.
