Church services

Distinct Words and Distinct Sounds – Our Church Services

In our church services, we devote special attention to the sermon. Its words clarify the Biblical contexts and proceed from there to shed light on the contemporary social and political situation and to brighten the lives of despairing souls. We attach great importance to reciting both parts of the Bible in their biblical context. Our readings and prayers follow a pericope model, allowing us to pay greater attention to the first part of the Bible than is generally the case in conventionally structured church services.
Furthermore, our services focus on the literary and musical treasures in our hymn book, accompanying them in manner that is both erudite and imaginative.
The services at the Französiche Friedrichstadtkirche are intended not only for our registered parishioners but also for all of our city’s inhabitants and visitors.

Every Sunday:
9.30 a.m. Service of the Ev. Kirchengemeinde in der Friedrichstadt
11.00 a.m. Service of the Französischen Kirche zu Berlin (Huguenots) based on the Reformed order.
11.00 a.m. The Culte de la Communauté Protestante en français dans la Salle Georges Casalis en sous-sol
