English interpreting on hold
Currently services at the Gellertkirche are being streamed online and are not interpreted into English. We plan to start interpreting again when more than 100 people are allowed to attend the 11:30 a.m. service in person.
Due to coronavirus regulations, the Gellertkirche has stopped holding services in person. Instead, services are livestreamed (in German) on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. and 7:07 p.m. and are available on YouTube. Please visit our archive for past sermons (PDF and MP3 files in German).
Events with more than 15 people are not allowed to take place in person. Events with fewer than 15 people (e.g., prayer meetings) may take place as long as participants
- maintain distance (1.5 meters)
- wear a mask
- ensure adequate air circulation (e.g., periodically open windows)
- refrain from singing.
Please consult the Gellertkirche’s schedule (in German) to check the status of upcoming events.
small group bible studies
Small group Bible studies (with a maximum of 10 people) may continue to meet in person if participants wear masks and maintain distance. Please do consume food or drinks, so masks can remain on. And please do not sing indoors; singing is only allowed outside while wearing a mask and maintaining distance.
We encourage small groups to find alternatives to meeting indoors—for example, using online platforms, meeting outside, or going on a prayer walk together.
We currently provide one small group Bible study in English for native and non-native English speakers who are interested in praying together, studying the Bible, and fellowshipping in a small group setting. For more information or if you would like to join the group, please contact the small group leader Kathrin Pope.
