Bible studies or large concerts, Taizé worship or socio-political panel discussions – the events are as varied as its visitors.
One minute's silence
Over 10,000 people have lost their lives in the last three years on the journey to Europe. They were fleeing war, hardship and terrorism and encountered closed borders, rejection and exclusion. To express our grief at these deaths, the Kirchentag will interrupt its programme on Friday at 12.00 noon to observe a minute’s silence. We show our practical support through the offerings at the Festive Service to the SOS Méditerannée and Mediterranean Hope projects, which help refugees coming across the Mediterranean to Europe.
