Divine Service

As a rule, weSchaukastenReformationstag2014-1024x768_DxO celebrate our services in liturgical form. In doing so, the congregation is actively involved through its participation in the worship celebration. Pastors, readers, organists, choristers, sometimes ministrants and all church attendants contribute their own part to the success of a worthy and fortifying worship.

Martin Luther did not wish to create a new church. Out of this tradition, full worship with sermon and celebration of Holy Communion (or Eucharist, Greek = thanksgiving) is celebrated often and in the form of the Lutheran Mass. Thus, our worship is also a link between the large denominations and tries to emphasize the communion of the Western Church in a consciously Lutheran confession.

Children’s service is celebrated every Sunday and on church holidays parallel to the adult service (beginning just before the sermon).

Our services  on Sundays and church holidays usually begin at 9:30 a.m. (on certain Sundays at 10:30 a.m. where indicated).

During construction of our new church, we will be holding services in the “Dreifaltigkeitskirche” (Congregatio Jesu) nearby in the Maria-Ward-Str. 11 unless otherwise noted (see map here).
