OUR WORSHIP




We worship God every day by exercising the three theological virtues, FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE in the context of the world and the communities in which we live and work.

But we gather together on the Lord's Day in His House where we offer up our sacrifice of common prayer, praise and thanksgiving, and where we encounter Christ through His Word and Sacrament.

Our prayer is that we would ever worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth.


What to expect

We are a small group of people who gather together on Sundays for worship in the meeting room of Connections Library/Café.

We generally celebrate the Eucharist (Holy Communion) weekly, using a traditional English-language liturgy (blending in some German elements.) Our service booklets are printed with English and German side by side. We sing mostly traditional hymns. Holy Scripture is an important part of our worship.

Services run approximately 90 minutes.

Children are very welcome in our services. In fact, we offer a children's message during the service each week. But we also have an adjoining nursery room if needed.

After service we offer coffee and tea and a time for conversation and fellowship.

OUR foundation

"One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic" - these are the four historic defining marks of the Church, built on the one true foundation: Jesus Christ.

ONE

The Church is ONE because it is one Body under one Head.

HOLY

The Church is HOLY because the Holy Spirit dwells in it, and sanctifies its members.

CATHOLIC

The Church is CATHOLIC because it is universal, holding earnestly the Faith for all time, in all countries, and for all people, and is sent to preach the Gospel to the whole world.

APOSTOLIC

The Church is APOSTOLIC because it continues steadfastly in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship.

For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.
