About us

The restoration is coordinated by Cēsis St. John’s Church Restoration Foundation. Our goal is not only to preserve and restore a unique cultural monument of national significance — Cēsis St. John’s Church — but also to ensure wide public access to the church and its cultural and historical values, to promote cultural events and tourism in the church, and to spread cultural and spiritual values.

The foundation works to ensure:

  • the restoration of the church facade, interior, sacred and art objects;
  • improved accessibility;
  • modern communication;
  • the creation of a cultural and artistic space;
  • the development of a souvenir line;
  • any other goal that helps Cēsis St. John’s Church to keep up with the times.

The restoration project is extensive and has involved countless supporters and sponsors over the years.

Cēsis St. John’s Church Restoration Foundation is currently under the management of Jānis Maizītis. Lote and Rihards Šteini are responsible for communication and public relations, and the foundation works hand in hand with the St. John’s Rural Evangelical Lutheran Congregation.

Thank you to everyone who has supported and will support the restoration of Cēsis St. John’s Church!
