This church was a gift from the city of Geneva to the German-speaking Lutheran community. Built between 1762-1766, it was felt that although they shared the same faith, Lutherans and Calvinists differed slightly on their points of doctrine and in the way they worshipped.
Therefore to allow them to worship according to their customs, they were given permission to build a church - on the condition that it could not be identifiable as such from the outside. So today you can see a traditional three-storey house rather than a church, with the sanctuary occupying the ground and first floors.
It is still used as a church today, offering services in English, German, Swedish, Danish, Norwegian and Finnish.
