Pastor Viola Chrzanowski
We celebrate our services on the third Sunday of every month at 11:30 a.m., featuring English language sermons by a different preacher each time.
After service, we usually have coffee and refreshments and fellowship in the annex. Unfortunately, this is not possible at the moment. We hope to be able to invite you again soon to meet some of the other visitors from many different nations and backgrounds, to enjoy getting to know each other or just having a relaxed chat.
As far as congregational singing is allowed in the current situation, our hymns will also focus on these chorales. Discover old and new texts to go with them.
Corresponding scripture readings and sermon thoughts by Pastor Viola Chrzanowski will guide us through this service.
Our team has put a lot of thought into the question how to celebrate our Christmas service Nine Lessons and Carols this year. It is quite clear that under the current circumstances, we unfortunately cannot celebrate the service as usual, with the church packed full of people.
The choir has not been able to rehearse yet in full strength and will do its best to sing beautifully as ever, but only in small groups as the situation allows. In order to compensate for that and the limited congregational singing, we have a special treat for you: The Handbell Choir of Hannover will enhance both our services on this day!
Due to the limited seating, we are now planning to have two services on December 20, one at 9.30 a.m. and one at 11.30 a.m.
Please note: We will have to have a ticketing system for these services. The tickets will be free of charge, but you will need to have a ticket for the service you wish to attend. These tickets will be available on November 15 after worship. Please watch this website for further information about when to get tickets at a later point in time from the church office.
It is with great joy that we can celebrate our services again!
In order to minimize the risk of infection, we will however have to comply with a set of rules and restrictions:
- We will have to seat people at a certain distance from each other. Of course, members of one household may sit together.
- We may have to limit the number of visitors in order to allow for the necessary distance.
- We ask that you wear a face mask in church.
- Singing will be possible only with restrictions.
- We will not be able to recommence with Sunday school yet.
- We are not allowed to have refreshments or coffee after service.
We are very glad that we can at least celebrate a service again together!
