The New Almshouse built for the city poor was used by the Swedish congregation in Tallinn after the Great Northern War. The church was used as a gym for heavy athletics during the Soviet times. It was reconsecrated in 2002 and has been restored. Besides the Baroque altar (Joachim Armbrust) and the Baroque pulpit the church has a unique baptistery (Christian Ackermann, 1680).
