Architecture and history

The Protestant town church was built around 1750 on what was then the village green , now Breite Straße. It is a single-aisled hall church with a plastered facade. During the extensions in 1895 and 1910, additions were built on the sides of the tower and portal porches to the south and north of the hall. A comprehensive restoration took place in 1955. The listed ensemble also includes the organ from 1906 and three bells from 1924, 1955 and 1956. In the immediate vicinity is the rectory to the north and the residential and commercial building Am Anger 10 on the opposite side of the street .

Today the Protestant parish Velten belongs to the parish of Oberes Havelland in the Potsdam district of the Evangelical Church Berlin-Brandenburg-Silesian Upper Lusatia .
