By the mid-1950s, the suburb of Brandenbaum had grown extensively. Yet the nearest church was too small and too far away, so a new parish was created, though it had no church of its own in the beginning. Services had to be celebrated in Meesen barracks. It was not before 1956 that the foundation stone to St. Philippus could be set, and the unusual design by architect Gerhardt Langmaak was heavily disputed right from the start. But this effect was desired, since the church was meant to differ from the rectangular structures of the surrounding apartment buildings. When the building was finished in 1957, people got used to the "slanting" view, and today St. Philippus is regarded as landmark of the suburb, often called the "hallelujah ski slope". Lutheran service is celebrated each Sunday at 10a.
