Calling musicians for our ‘Family Services’

Our new Family Services which will take place on the third Sunday morning of each month, starting September (at least that’s the plan!)

Do you play an instrument / sing in a band? Would you like to take part in this more informal service, on a regular or occasional basis? 

Repertoire will be varied, but include worship and children’s songs, as well as some more traditional hymns. Rehearsals will be on the day, at 09.45, just before the service, and we are especially keen to attract some new musicians. (Our choir and organist have 3rd Sunday mornings off!) 

If this might be your thing, don’t be shy. Please contact the Director of Music (Yotin, music (at) anglican-church-hamburg.de ) or the Chaplain (Jules, chaplain (at) anglican-church-hamburg.de ).

Book your place for a special Ascension Day dawn liturgy – and breakfast!

The tradition in the Church of England (Anglican Church) is to go to a high place at dawn on Ascension Day, to celebrate the ascension of our Lord. This would usually be a church tower, or the summit of a nearby hill – but we don’t have either of these, so we’re going on to the roof of the Ecumencial Forum instead. 

God is gone up with a merry noise, with the sound of the trumpet!

Please email chaplain@anglican-church-hamburg.de to book your place.
