Evangelical Lutheran parish church of St. John and associated community center

The parish church of St. Johannes is located at Augsburger Straße 36 in the Kumpfmühl district of Regensburg . The community is part of the deanery of Regensburg in the parish of Regensburg the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria .


In 1950 Paul Fetzer from Regensburg bequeathed a house in Augsburger Straße to the Protestant church. In 1952 Gottfried Bauer from Regensburg converted the house into a church with a sacristan's house and a kindergarten. On January 1, 1956, the parish of St. John was spun off from the Dreieinigkeitskirche / Upper City parish. Until the church building was demolished in 1991, the Johanneskirche was the only surviving emergency church in Regensburg from the post-war period. At the site of the previous church, today's St. Johannes parish center was built in 1993 according to plans by the architect Theodor Hugues from Munich.


The six planted barrel roofs span the Johannes Church, a two-storey community center with a hall, group rooms and function rooms as well as the St. Johannes kindergarten. The Johanneskirche has a three-sided gallery. The metal cross and the candlesticks were made by Fritz Koenig from Landshut. Georg Jann's organ from 1995 has 13 registers with two manuals .
