You can join this service either in church, or live online via YouTube live. All you have to do is follow this link. The Livestream will start at 9.45 am.
Due to current conditions Sunday school has already begun its Christmas break. Our creche/nursery service for the younger children will however continue to be offered until today, Dec. 19.
Please note that based on the new regulations and recommendations in Hessen documentary proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative antigen test (3G rule) is now required to attend all church services. Documentary proof can be the electronic (QR code in one of the Covid Apps) or paper (vaccination certificate or booklet), through electronic proof is preferred. A self-test is not adequate. Please have these ready on arrival to avoid delays. Thank you!
If you are coming to the service, please download the bulletin to your phone or tablet, if you can, as we are printing fewer paper bulletins to avoid wastage. Please also remember to bring and use a medical mask (OP or FFP2), which now have to be worn throughout the service.
If you want to include prayers for yourself or another during the Prayers of the People at any of our services, please send me an email
