Long Description:
This church is a German church, originally set up by immigrants who set up business in the thriving Bradford woollen trade. The size of the congregation has now dwindled and the church was in need of renovation.

Rather than selling the building, the congregation decided to turn the building into a dual purpose centre. As well as part funding the project they managed to raise outside funds to do the conversion. The building is now used by a number of different bodies and will hopefully serve the community well.

It is still used for church services once a month.

The address is
29 Great Horton Road
West Yorkshire
United Kingdom

The family of the Bradford born composer Frederick Delius used to worship at the church and the family lived just round the corner. In honour of this the centre is called the Delius Arts and Cultural Centre.
