Since January 2017 the St. Johannes-Evangelist-Kirche is no longer available for cultural projects and rentals.
From 2003 - end of 2016 the St. Johannes-Evangelist-Kirche was a venue of the Kultur Büro Elisabeth, a space for interreligious questions, meetings, actions, for art and culture. Especially contemporary exhibitions and installations found their special place here, where they could enter into dialogue with the space. Further focal points were (very) old vocal music in small formations as well as special music and sound art projects that incorporated the special acoustics of the place.
St. Johannes-Evangelist was the venue for musikfest berlin 08 of the berliner festpiele, the Biennale für Alte Musik (zeitfenster) and the Biennale for Contemporary Art. Many individual projects of the independent scene also found an inspiring venue here.
History of the church
The church St. Johannes-Evangelist, built in neo-Romanesque style according to a design by Max Spitta from 1898 to 1900, originally offered space for over 700 people. The congregation, which was severely decimated after the war, was divided among the three neighbouring congregations in 1978 and the church was rented to the Humboldt University as a book depository for several decades. After its return in summer 2002, St. Johannes-Evangelist was rededicated by Bishop Wolfgang Huber on January 10, 2003 and opened as a sacred space and at the same time as a place for cultural events.
Since the beginning of 2017, the St. Johannes-Evangelist-Kirche has been rented out to the Syrian Rum-Orthodox community in Berlin.
