The Market Church is the oldest Protestant church in the centre of Essen and it can look back over a varied history. Today it is the official place of worship for the church district of Essen. Apart from providing the setting for divine services and devotions, this is the venue for regular performances of church music, exhibitions and talks. But you are also welcome to spend a few moments of contemplation and quiet here: you can light a candle, say a prayer or record a personal wish in the book that is laid out for this purpose.
