The Christuskirche is a Protestant church in the Oststadt district of Mannheim, Germany. Together with the Church of Peace, it forms the ChristusFriedenGemeinde. It was built between 1907 and 1911 according to the plans of Christian Schrade in neo-baroque style with Art Nouveau echoes. Barely affected by the great war destruction of 1943/44, it has been preserved almost completely in its original state. In its rich design, the Christuskirche adapted to the upper-middle-class villa district of the Oststadt and formed the crowning glory of the Protestant church building activities that became necessary due to the strong population growth during the industrialization of Mannheim.
