English church services in Hannover

Come and worship with us!

Special note: As of November 2013, the English services are temporarily cancelled. We are currently discussing how and if to continue them. If you are interested in attending, or would like to know if and when they resume, please contact us using the form here.

While we currently only offer our regular German-language services, we offer the opportunity to worship and partake in Holy Communion in English in Hannover if enough people express an interest.

At all of our services, everyone is welcome to join us (whether a member of a church or not). All who are baptized and who wish to come into the presence of Christ are welcome to partake in the sacrament of Holy Communion, regardless of denomination – for not we, but Christ Himself invites us to His holy meal. Families with children are also welcome.

Come and join us in praising God in all His glory!

My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour... (Luke 1:46b-47)

A note for Anglicans and Episcopalians

Are you an Anglican or Episcopalian living in or visiting the greater Hannover region? The Old Catholics of Hannover-Lower Saxony invite you to worship with us!

While there is currently not an Anglican or Episcopal parish in Hannover or Osnabrück, you may or may not know that the German Old Catholic Church and the Anglican churches worldwide are in full communion – that is, our churches fully recognize and support one another. We share liturgy and ideas freely and represent one another in ecumenical conferences. In fact, a few years ago our parish priest at the time was himself an Episcopalian.

If you are elsewhere in Germany, you can find Anglican chaplaincies in Germany here, Episcopal parishes here and Old Catholic parishes here.

We look forward to worshipping with you!

For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them. (Matthew 18:20)
