The church, like the neighboring Protestant Kaiser Friedrich Memorial Church, was built in 1957 as part of Interbau, which was the the first building exhibition in Berlin. The contemporary press praised the two churches as model solutions for modern sacred buildings, whose architecture achieved a unique spatial effect with new floor plans and modern materials.
Willy Kreuer's design envisioned a so-called “rectory”, which, in addition to the church building with 250 seats, it also includes a two-story rectory and parish hall. The sacristy forms the link between the rectory and the church and the complex is delimited to the street by a free-standing wall.
