Warm welcome to our German communion service with the theme “Baptism – more than a ritual?” this Sunday with Pastor Kim at 11am.
Parish worker Yasmina Buhre invites you to attend Sunday school again this Sunday from 11 a.m.: We start our service at 11 a.m. in the church and then move with our candle into the Kigo room.
We revisit the topic of “symbols”, this time it’s about the symbol “fish”. At the same time, we discuss the first details about the nativity play and start with the first craft work.

We will meet next Thursday, 9/11, as usual from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. under the lemon tree at our church. New families are welcome to join us at any time.
More information is also welcome by email at pw@kirche.org.au.

Christmas Market

The Nuremberg Christkind will open our Christmas market digitally this year – we are looking forward to this wonderful collaboration with the city of Nuremberg.

Raffle donations needed!

Unlike in Germany, our church is self-financed and therefore dependent on fundraising. The Christmas market and the raffle are a good opportunity to secure financing for our activities next year. That’s why we’re asking for donations in kind of a raffle.
Maybe you work at a pharmacy, in retail, … or or or and have the opportunity to ask for donations in for our raffle in stores in your area? Jam, chutneys, cookies, wine, anything you can turn into a hamper is more than welcome. If you can help us with donations, you may drop them off in the church hall after the service or contact Kim or the office. Thank you!
