About the place

The Friesian church in the colony of Shenvize was built on the main street. Part of the money for the construction of the church was given by local businessman Peter Lepp.

The church is a one-story brick prayer house, which is built of red ceramic brick. Rectangular in plan, which is typical for a Brick style.

The composition of the main facade is central-axial - in five axes. The porch and the canopy of the main entrance are not preserved in their original form today.

The architectural design of the facades is laconic and simple, characteristic not only of the architecture of the second half of the 19th century, but also of the life philosophy of the Mennonites. Their houses of worship were more like residences.

The value of such buildings was determined not only by their artistic appearance. The breakdown of the facades by the vertical rhythm of the angular and inter-window pilasters, the design of rectangular windows with a simple platband with a triangular sandric are the only elements of decor in the building's architecture.

Several horizontal motifs were introduced into the facade composition: a socle with a brick cladding, a thin window sill and a frieze with a simple geometric pattern are emphasized. Two-side side facades continue the theme of street facade design. The roof is gable and at first it was under the tile.

Today, the interior of the church is damaged. Now here are the offices of the administrative buildings. On the side of the courtyard facade annexes were carried out. Ceramic facade brick after repair is plastered and painted.

The building of the Friesian church gives an idea of ​​the cult architecture of the region of the second half of the 19th century.In the Zaporizhzhia region, there are only a few such structures. The Friesian Church is a monument of religious architecture in Zaporizhzhia.
