    The church constitutes an example of a building erected in accordance with the program for Protestant church architecture known as the Wiesbadener Programm (Wiesbaden program), announced in 1891. Numerous similarities exist between this church and the churches designed by Johannes Otzen, including those in Apolda and Elbląg. At a local level, the church remains a part of the urban design concept inspired by the Vienna Ring Road and covering the areas freed up through the demolition of the medieval fortifications which had once surrounded the town.

    The entire complex is situated in the area inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list which also forms part of the monument of history designated as “Toruń - Old and New Town District”.
