The Hannover International Worship team welcomes you: Come and join us for worship at Petri Church in Kleefeld!

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, you are invited to join us for coffee and refreshments. Meet some of the other visitors from many nations and backgrounds. Enjoy getting to know each other or just having a relaxed chat.

World Day of Prayer

In our February service, we will celebrate World Day of Prayer which comes from Taiwan this year.

The order of service is prepared by a committee of Christian women from different denominations each year. The exciting part is that the committee is from a different country every year, so we get to "travel" to a different country and hear the stories of women from that country.

The Petri-Nikodemus guitar group will enhance our service with their singing and playing.

Do you enjoy cooking? Why don't you try some Taiwanese recipes (in German here). It would be wonderful to have a potluck of Taiwanese food for our refreshments after the service. So if you like, please bring a Taiwanese dish!

Nine Lessons and Carols

Our Christmas service of Nine Lessons and Carols was so beautiful with the Petri choir and the handbell choir of the Gartenkirche!

We are not only grateful to everyone who contributed to this wonderful service but also for an absolutely amazing collection of € 496.33 in the 9:30 service and € 821.28 in the 11:30 service.

As announced, this will go toward the support of CHIPS (Christian International Peace Service) and The Bright Light.

Keep warm!

Due to the possibility of an upcoming gas shortage in which private households will be prioritized, we will not be allowed to heat the church this winter beyond keeping it frost-free.

Please dress accordingly so that you will feel warm and comfortable nonetheless. We will provide some blankets for you to use, but please come prepared.

We may decide to celebrate some of our services in the annex which will at least be heated, though not to living room temperatures.
