The two-towered brick facade with a pronounced corbel table outlining the gables and the tall slate-clad spires rising from bracketed cornices are shared features of midcentury German congregations. Organized in 1743, the church attests to the continuing German presence in York. The vaguely English Gothic rear wing was added by Dempwolf; the modern glass of the sanctuary is the work of the Willet Studios of Philadelphia.
