The Reformierte Kirche in Leipzig and its parish centre are regarded as the first example of a unified construction of a church and neighbouring rectory.
At that time churches were mostly free-standing buildings and rarely integrated into a block of buildings. On the Tröndlingring north of the historic city centre, however, all these conventions were discarded and the first church was built between 1896 and 1899, uniting the parsonage and the church in one building. Equipped with a 67 metre high tower and decorative elements such as bay windows, canopies, balustrades and balconies.
During the heavy bombing raid on Leipzig on the night of the 4 December 1943 the church was badly damaged. The reconstruction was completed in 1969, but by 1950 the church was already being used for church services. In 1989, the community actively participated in the Peaceful Revolution. As the first church after the St. Nicholas Church, the prayers for peace began here on October 2. On 9 Of October, the demonstration was secretly filmed from the tower of the church. A day later, those images were on TV.
