New Church of the Evangelical Brethren

The newest church in Litomyšl is the New Church of the Evangelical Brethren on Moravská street. The cornerstone of this church was laid in 2008 and the church was opened on 4 December 2010. The interior contains works by Karel Malich – an arrangement of rings, an altar and lectern. Also worthy of note is a standing stone cross by Václav Cigler which during the day reflects the sun’s rays and at night glows in the dark as a reminder of God’s mercy. The site for the church was donated by the town of Litomyšl and the building, costing 20 million crowns, was financed predominantly from donations by worshippers and friends, sale of the original prayer room and also a grant from the budget for the Pardubice region and the town of Litomyšl. The church serves not only as a meeting place for worshippers; its multifunction spaces are also used by the community for other activities. Lectures and social events are held here and it is also a place for children’s and student’s clubs.
