Parish Registers of the "Ev-luth. Kirche Oldenburg"
Church district Vechta

As in the whole so called “Oldenburger Münsterland the Catholic church has been the dominating church in the Vechta area. While the Neuenkirchen parish was an old one reaching back to the Münster period, the other parishes were only founded after the area became a part of the Grand Duchy of Oldenburg in 1815. Wulfenau and Fladderlohhausen were small Lutheran strongholds within the Dinklage and Damme parish respectively. In Goldenstedt there has been a remarkable Lutheran minority based on the fact that the parish area was once connected – or at least has been claimed by – with the Grafschaft Diepholz. From 1650 to 1850 both the Lutherans and Catholics celebrated their services in one church during the same hours based on a special contract cvalled “Simultanteum mixtum”.
