  • In July 1777 the new congregation was constituted, the Wupperfeld was parceled out and a provisional wooden church, a so-called Tente, was built for around 900 people and was consecrated as the first church of the Lutheran congregation of Wupperfeld, with ongoing protests from the neighboring congregation. The construction of the church cost 30,846 Reichstaler and was financed to about a third from collection funds that were collected within the community, but also outside the country. The foundation stone was laid on March 24, 1779, and the Wupperfeld Church was inaugurated on July 10, 1785. The pastorate, a school house, a teacher's apartment, a poor house and orphanage and the nearby cemetery were laid out at the same time.On May 30, 1943, the church was ruined in a bombing raid on Barmen. Initially, the Lutherkirche am Heidt served as the community's only church that was not destroyed. The restoration of the tower of the old church began as early as 1946; the building was rebuilt with interruptions in the following years. A first service in the makeshift church took place on September 3, 1950, and on June 21, 1953, the completely restored church was inaugurated with a simplified interior.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alte_Kirche_Wupperfeld
