Please join us for our Service of Holy Eucharist on the First Sunday in Advent, November 28 at 10:00 am. Our readings are Jeremiah 33:14-16, 1 Thessalonians 3:9-13, and Luke 21:25-36. The Rev. Chris Easthill will be preaching and presiding, and the Advent Wreath will be blessed as the first candle is lit. The bulletin is here.
You can join our worship services 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.
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).
On Monday, November 29 at 5 pm we have our annual AIDS memorial service together with the AIDS-Hilfe Wiesbaden.
Please also note that a medical mask (surgical, FFP2 or DIN KN95/N95) must be worn until you take your place.

For some years now we have been making Christmas (shoe) boxes with Christmas gifts for children in Romania. If you would like to take part, please fill your shoe boxes with selected items from the list (available from the office).
