Zawiercie Affiliate History

Affiliate of Zawiercie

Settlement and history - Zawiercie, a small village with a number of Evangelical Lutheran families belonged to the Landlord Poreba Mrzyglodzka. The first Evangelical church service was held in Poreba in 1860. It wasn’t until the late 1880s that Zawiercie began to develop into a larger factory centre.

The village was included in the affiliate of Dombrowa until 1888 and then in Tschenstochau. The first corner stone of the Zawiercie Church was not laid until 1898 and it was inaugurated in 1899. The actual affiliate of Zawiercie wasn’t formed until 1914.

There were approximately 80 Lutheran families in the town in 1900.
