Church of Jesus, Riga

Church of Jesus (Latvian: Jēzus Evaņģēliski luteriskā baznīca) is a Lutheran church in Riga, the capital of Latvia. It is a parish church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Latvia. The church is situated at the address 18 Elijas Street.

History

In common with other ancient suburban parish churches in Riga, the church building has been destroyed and rebuilt on a number of occasions, as a result of war or siege. The first church building was built in the seventeenth century; the foundation stone was laid in 1635, and it was consecrated in 1638. The present building was completed in 1822 and is the largest wooden classical building in Latvia.

Current work

The church has an active congregation. It is located in the more impoverished part of Riga, south-east of the old town, behind the imposing Latvian Academy of Sciences building. There is a particular ministry to young people, with some services offering lively musical accompaniment and leadership by young people. There is an active children's ministry and the church claims to have the largest Sunday School in Latvia.

Rīgas Jēzus Evaņģēliski luteriskā baznīca

Rīgas Jēzus Evaņģēliski luteriskā baznīca ir Latvijas Evaņģēliski luteriskās baznīcas dievnams Elijas ielā 18, Rīgā. Baznīcā darbojas Rīgas Jēzus luterāņu draudze.

Rīgas Jēzus Evaņģēliski luteriskā baznīca ir lielākā koka celtne Latvijā, kā arī viena no lielākajām koka baznīcām Eiropā.

Baznīca tika celta laikā no 1818. līdz 1822. gadam, tās projekta autors ir Kristiāns Frīdrihs Breitkreics, taču būve tika pabeigta arhitekta Johana Pētera Krīka vadībā, jo Breitkreics mira. Šī ir pēc skaita ceturtā Jēzus baznīca. Iepriekšējā baznīca tika nodedzināta 1812. gadā.

Baznīcas ēkas pamatā ir regulārs oktogons, kam ir apkārt četras piebūves. Baznīcas tornis ir divpakāpju, tas ir 37 metrus augsts. Baznīca ir no guļbaļķiem, no koka ir veidotas arī nesošās kolonnas. 1938. gadā pēc arhitekta Paula Kundziņa projekta baznīca ir tikusi rekonstruēta.

Baznīcā mūsdienās nav vitrāžu, tomēr, iespējams, agrāk viena ir bijusi. Ir saglabājies zvans no 1708. gada, ko no bronzas lējis no Dancigas ieceļojušais un Rīgā strādājušais Jēkabs Rode.

Baznīcas ērģeles tikušas būvētas 1889. gadā Vācijā, un 1992. gadā tika veikta to rekonstrukcija.
