Invitation to join Good Friday Worship from Wiesbaden, Germany
In 2015, the Evangelical Church in Wiesbaden, Germany recognized the opportunity to foster a new worshiping community to offer a diversity of worship practices familiar to Christian immigrants. The English Community Outreach Project was established to form a congregation uniting Protestant traditions in Germany with other cultural Christian traditions in worship. Today, members of the congregation come from Cameroon, Korea, Syria, Indonesia, and other European locations.
Rev. Rosalind Gnatt, pastor of the congregation and Global Ministries mission co-worker, invites you to a Good Friday service remembering “the events of less than a day for the controversial teacher and healer, that ended in a borrowed tomb. Both loved and hated by many, it seems he was misunderstood by all but one or two.”
If you can join, here is the Order of Service. The musical meditations range from an 11th century poem, St. Patrick’s Schield, set by the 20th century composer Arvo Pärt, and Orlando Gibbons of the 17th century, to works of Bach, Chopin, Beethoven and Ottorino Respighi.
